Every single day, RMHC® NZ becomes a home-away-from-home for over 100 families, who have to travel across New Zealand for their child’s medical care.
When families walk through our doors they come to a safe and supportive space, a place to call home. Where they will find a sense of community and a support network they may not have had before.
At Ronald McDonald House® programmes families can find a sense of normalcy away from the beeping machines, a respite during one of the most challenging times in their lives. Our Family Room® programmes make the time spent with a new-born in the NICU a little less stressful by giving families a space to take a quick nap or make a cup of tea.
In 2020, RMHC New Zealand provided almost 3,700 families with accommodation and support free of charge at its facilities throughout New Zealand. It was the busiest year since the first New Zealand opening almost 30 years ago.
Our role is more than just providing accommodation or meals - it’s about creating a bright and hopeful environment where families can find the strength they need to face each day with hope.
Team NZBLUE is supporting RMHC as we believe that creating a bright and hopeful environment where families can find the strength they need to face each day with hope is vitally important in NZ.
