The third Ronald McDonald House in the country is officially opened and now welcomes families of pediatric patients seeking treatment at Hospital Tunku Azizah, formerly known as Hospital Wanita dan Kanak-Kanak Kuala Lumpur.
The Ronald McDonald House is a “home away from home”, which aims to fulfil the needs of families of pediatric patients from outside Kuala Lumpur, while helping to alleviate families’ financial burdens by providing affordable lodging at only RM15 per night in the city.
Located on the 10th floor of the hospital parking complex, the house is equipped with 20 family rooms, which can accommodate up to 80 occupants, a dining area, lounge area, kitchen, laundry room, prayer room, and playroom, and other facilities. The home is also strategically located in the heart of KL, offering beautiful night views of the city.
“We at Ronald McDonald House Charities Malaysia (RMHC) would like to thank all parties who have made the construction and development of our Ronald McDonald Houses. All houses were funded via donations from McDonald’s customers who contributed through the RMHC coin box located at more than 300 McDonald’s restaurants nationwide as well as contributions from McDonald’s employees, business partners and franchisees.
“Thank you for your generosity towards our mission to change the lives of Malaysian children. RMHC Malaysia will continue to champion the needs of Malaysian children through the funds we receive from generous Malaysians,” said Azmir Jaafar, President of Ronald McDonald House Charities Malaysia as well as Managing Director and Local Operating Partner of McDonald’s Malaysia.
