RONALD McDONALD HOUSE CHARITIES®Our Charity of Choice
We care about the people and the communities near McDonald's restaurants. In 1974, we became the Founding Mission Partner for
Ronald McDonald House Charities® and continue to provide support to the Charity in many ways.
First Ronald McDonald House®
Ronald McDonald House® has been completed in 2022 and opened its doors in September of the same year. It is the opening of the first Ronald McDonald House®, a modern guest house, opposite the Archbishop Makarios III Hospital in Nicosia providing free accommodation and support to families of children who are hospitalized. The guest house is able to accommodate 12 families for overnight stays and meals and also, it is available for daily use for families who choose to return to their own homes at night.
In addition, the charity often provides support to families from Cyprus who require free accommodation in one of the 376 guest houses maintained by Ronald McDonald House Charities around the world, with whom we cooperate. All the services provided are free.
Recognising how important the constant presence of a child’s family is in such trying times, RMHC has been creating Family Rooms & Family Houses, which are always located inside or next to hospitals where children are being treated as well as the Care Mobile Units, which can drive to locations where medical care is not readily available.
Pediatric Clinic for Children with Heart Disease
McDonald’s is RMHC Cyprus’ main sponsor and a variety of fundraising activities are organised in order to financially support the charity.
The first major project of RMHC Cyprus was the creation of the Pediatric Clinic for children with heart disease at the Archbishop Makarios III Hospital in Nicosia, which was officially inaugurated in October 2014.
