Toronto, Ontario, November 21, 2023.
Today, DKI Canada is thrilled to announce a new partnership with Ronald McDonald House Charities Canada which will have a lasting impact on the charity’s mission to support families with sick children across Canada. As RMHC Canada’s newest National Mission Partner, this commitment will enable more than 1,560 nights of stay.
This partnership is a testament to DKI Canada's commitment and reflects our belief in the importance of making a positive impact on the environment, our communities, and society.
“As Canada’s national family care charity, RMHC has supported families with seriously ill children for more than 40 years,” says Kate Horton, CEO, RMHC Canada. “Today, across the country, our 34 programs give families a place to stay together while their child is being treated at a nearby hospital, offering all the familiar comforts of home, and so much more, to help make their journeys a little easier. We are deeply grateful to our partners at DKI Canada for meeting our families’ essential needs, at a time when it’s needed most.”
This commitment to RMHC Canada is engrained in DKI Canada’s corporate culture and embraced by all DKI Members across the country.
“In early 2023, DKI Canada embarked on a mission to raise $250,000 to support the well-being of seriously ill children and their families. Through the combined efforts of DKI Canada Corporation, DKI Canada Members and individual donations, we not only achieved but surpassed our fundraising goal.” Says Chris Schmidt, CEO of DKI Canada.
“On behalf of DKI Canada, we extend our heartfelt gratitude. Your support has been instrumental in reaching this milestone and we acknowledge that without you, reaching our goal would not have been possible.”
RMHC is part of, and partner to, Canada’s paediatric healthcare system, enabling access to children’s hospitals across the country for families with a sick child. DKI is proud to support RMHC in keeping families together and close to the medical care their sick child needs. This remarkable accomplishment has left a lasting impact within our communities and beyond.
About Ronald McDonald House Charities® Canada (RMHC® Canada)
In Canada, 65 per cent of families live outside a city with a children's hospital and must travel for treatment if their child is seriously ill. In an average year, the RMHC network of programs in Canada helps to keep more than 26,000 families close to their sick child and the care they need. The 16 Ronald McDonald Houses provide out-of-town families with a home to stay at while their child is being treated at a nearby hospital, while the 18 Ronald McDonald Family Rooms provide a comfortable place for families to rest and recharge, right inside hospitals.
