What does the Ronald McDonald children's fund do?
A sick child can not live without his parents. If your child is ill, you want to be as close as possible to your parents. And if it has a disability, you want it to be able to do the same things as his or her peers. For more than thirty years, the Ronald McDonald Children's Fund has been helping sick or disabled children and their families in the Netherlands.
Houses and living rooms
Thanks to fifteen Ronald McDonald Houses, sick children always have their parents in the neighborhood. A safe idea for both parent and child.In eight Ronald McDonald Living rooms, which are located in the hospital, families come to rest in a homely environment.
Disabled children also want to go on holiday. That is possible in the four Ronald McDonald holiday accommodations. Everything has been thought of.
Everyone participates in the unique Ronald McDonald Center in Amsterdam North, an innovative sports center for children with disabilities.
How can I help?
With a portion of the income from ikbenzomooi.nl we want to support Ronald McDonald. 5% of the profit is reserved for the Ronald McDonald Fund. At the end of the year we add up the amount and donate this to the Foundation in one go.

Why the Ronald McDonald Children's Fund?
There are hundreds of beautiful foundations that all deserve your support. The Ronald McDonald Children's Fund is extra special for us because we have a lot of affinity with it. Kay the son of founder Jacolien has already made a lot in his young life. He had a severe open heart operation when he was 5 weeks old because he had a congenital abnormality . The Ronald McDonald Children's Fund offers parents a "home away from home" with the Ronald McDonald children's homes. A great initiative that we are very grateful for and many parents have already made use of.
NB Unfortunately Kay still died on 26 March 2011 despite all good care.
