The House LOVE will build
Help us build the most important HOUSE in the world
A New 53 Bedroom Ronald McDonald House
When a child is critically ill it is essential that they are constantly surrounded by the love and support of their family. For over 16 years the Ronald McDonald House beside Children’s Health Ireland at Crumlin has helped provide that support by keeping families close and together. Today as work begins on the New Children’s Hospital, RMHC has the unique opportunity to build a new home for all the families of Ireland’s most seriously ill children – a home that will touch the lives of thousands of seriously ill children and their families for generations to come.
Our Nation’s New Home From Home – 53 Bedroom Ronald McDonald House
The new Ronald McDonald House will be a vital home for families from every county and every town in Ireland. With 53 bedrooms spread out over four floors and numerous specially designed family, rest and play areas the new House will provide families with the highest standard of accommodation in the most loving and intimate surroundings.
The New Ronald McDonald House – designed for families
The House will provide direct, immediate and easy access to the Hospital. The House will have 53 fully equipped bedrooms which can cater for families of every size. The House will have intimate living areas to protect the privacy of family life. The House will have play areas and recreation rooms for children of all ages. The House will have a direct phone line to the Hospital in every bedroom.
How Ronald McDonald House changes lives
Extensive research has proven that a stay in a Ronald McDonald House has an enormous impact on a family caring for a critically ill child in hospital. The House helps to: reduce stress, remove financial worries, increase the quality of life, provide unique solidarity and support and improve family coping skills.
It takes Hands to build a House but only Love can build a Home
