GALWAY SICK KIDS
SUPPORTING CHILDREN & THEIR FAMILIES ATTENDING
THE PAEDIATRIC UNIT OF UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL GALWAY
Supporting Children & their Families
We began Galway Sick Kids in order to raise funds to make a difference and improve the hospital experience for the children attending University Hospital Galway’s Paediatric unit.
We wanted to support the children and their families through stressful times by providing basic facilities, equipment and information in a child-focused, friendly environment. Our charity helps the children of Galway, Donegal, Sligo, Roscommon, Mayo and North Clare.
We Are Looking For Donations!
The Paediatric Unit has a lovely safe playground installed by Galway based company, Creative Solutions. We are now working with them for our next project which is to supply a wheelchair accessible swing for the children who may need it. the cost of this is in the region of €20000.00 including ground works etc. We hope to see this in place by late spring time 2022.
Since we last updated you we supplied a Sensory Cubbie from Cairn International in Mayo – as you can imagine we are always delighted to be able to spend your money locally. This unit sits in the playroom and is available for kids who may need a quite, safe space when they’re inpatients. This cost €20,000.00
Future projects include looking at the parents rest-room and giving it a make over and also the nurses tea room. Details to follow.
Our next fundraising target is €20,000.00 PLEASE SUPPORT
