RMHC® New Zealand supports families when their child is in a hospital away from home.

The Ronald McDonald House® and Ronald McDonald Family Room® programmes take care of the practical things in life so families can focus on their child staying in a hospital away from home. Each year we offer 4,600 families across New Zealand accommodation and support free of charge.

This helps to relieve stresses like paying for a place to sleep near the hospital, organising family meals and needing a friendly ear to listen on tough days.

Simply, we give families with a hospitalised child what they need most — each other.

Coronavirus is putting vulnerable children at risk.  15 April 2020

Posted by: Ronald McDonald House New Zealand

For families with a child in hospital, RMHC New Zealand is their safe space – and they need safety now more than ever. Each week during this outbreak, families will arrive at hospitals far from their homes in need of accommodation, food and support. Serious medical conditions don’t take a break in the face of COVID-19. Many of these children will be facing conditions or treatment that will leave their immune systems vulnerable to contracting COVID-19 – with potentially devastating consequences.

RMHC New Zealand has been deemed an essential service by the Ministry of Social Development and our partnering DHBs. This means our core mission, to provide families with accommodation and support when their child is in a hospital away from home can still be fulfilled.

RMHC New Zealand has recently launched an emergency campaign to help cover the costs aligned with continuing to support House families during the COVID-19 outbreak. Please donate today to help us provide safe accommodation and support to families during the COVID-19 outbreak, and beyond.
