Families are stronger together, especially when they are facing illness. The concept of family-centered care has long been popular in the North America. According to research, with the support and love from immediate loved ones, the hospitalized child tends to feel less lonely, cope better and heal faster. A network of support can help relieve the emotional stress. At the Ronald McDonald House and Family Room, parents can be more rested, which enables them to better communicate with their child's medical team and keep up with complicated treatment plans when needed. They can also focus on the health of their child, rather than grocery shopping, cleaning, or cooking meals.

About the Charity

Ronald McDonald House Charities Singapore was founded in 1989, and belongs to a global network of over 260 chapters in 62 countries. We are an independently administered charity with a simple mission - to directly improve the health and well-being of children in Singapore.

We believe that a "home" is more than four walls and a roof over your head. That is why every Ronald McDonald House is a safe haven that provides all the comforts of home, plus the compassion and hospitality of staff, volunteers, and other families - all just steps away from the hospital.

Our home is filled with more than help; it is filled with hope. We believe that when families are together, they cope better. That is because we believe that no family should have to deal with their child's medical crisis alone.

Seriously ill or injured children often need to spend weeks or months in a hospital for the necessary treatment. It is not only an incredibly long time to be away from home but also for a family to be divided - usually with the mother at the bedside of the sick child, leaving the father or relatives to take care of the siblings. Ronald McDonald House serves as a place of respite and also one for the families to gather, while being close to their warded child.
