Welcome to New Zealand's Ronald McDonald Houses
We know that when a family faces the weight of a child’s illness, the best thing they can do is face it together. New Zealand’s Ronald McDonald Houses keep families together – because families are stronger when they are together.
Imagine how difficult life would be if you had to be away from home for days, weeks or even months, whilst your child received specialist hospital care in another city. Our Houses provide free accommodation and support to the thousands of Kiwi families who find themselves in this situation each year.
At this emotionally difficult time, our Houses offer families more than just a place to sleep; we provide a caring, supportive environment where mums, dads, brothers, sisters and grandparents can remain all together. With the practicalities of day to day life taken care of families can focus on the most important thing – helping their children heal.
