Ronald McDonald House @ NUH
Established and opened in January 2013, our Ronald McDonald House programme provides a place of respite for families, allowing them to be close to their hospitalised child at no cost.
Many families travel far from home to get treatment for their seriously ill children. Often, it can be a long time away from home, and family. For children facing a serious medical crisis, nothing seems scarier than not having their mom and dad close by for love and support. The Ronald McDonald House allows families to be steps away while their children are receiving treatment at NUH. Situated near the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit, the RMH is approximately 126 square meters of space. It has four ensuite bedrooms, a reading room, living room, dining room, laundry area and kitchenette.
Our Ronald McDonald House is staffed 24 hours, seven days a week, and offers a place to call home at no cost so families can afford the best care for their children.
In order to continue caring for their sick children, caregivers need to prioritise their wellbeing and keep themselves healthy and nothing beats a hearty meal after a long day of caregiving. For the convenience of our families, we now also provide ready-to-eat meals twice a week.
The 4-bedroom House has been able to serve over 930 families, or over 11,000 room nights.
