Having a child in hospital is every family’s worst nightmare. By engaging us closely with Ronald McDonald House Charity in Sweden, we are proud to change the lives of families with sick children while in hospital care and though treatments.
Ronald McDonald House charity is a non-profit charity organization that helps keep families together, close to their children while in hospital. Their vision is that all seriously sick children can live together in a homely and safe environment, close to the hospital with their families close to them.
The mission is to create and support initiatives that have a positive impact on the well-being of sick children, their families and loved ones.
– When severe illness turns our life upside down, we often realizes that what matters most is to be together with the ones we love. And just like families are stronger together, so are we. Our Houses and organisations depend on friends that want to help us make a difference, and very often that help is not some rocket science solution, says Agnieszka Eriksson Organizational Lead at Ronald McDonald House in Huddinge.
– We are proud to help out in any way we can. The beds in the house were very well used and if we can contribute to making the family’s night sleep a little better, we will, says Stefan Noble, founder of Visual Art.
Our founder Stefan Noble has been a proud and engaged board member since 2015 and when the house in Stockholm started to go through a renovation in 2020, we got the possibility to donate new beds to the rooms.
– Most of the time it is the simple stuff that best helps our families cope with the hardships – like getting to sleep in a comfortable bed. We are so grateful for our long and loving friendship with the people at Visual Art, for their personal and corporate engagement in our mission. It truly helps us make a difference, says Agnieszka Eriksson.
Every year, 3,600 families live in the houses and since the start in 1993, there have been a total of 200,000 family members.
