#1695 ... The New Ronald McDonald House

The new Ronald McDonald House in Newtown ... opposite the hospital ... a home away from home for family of children in hospital ... the original house, which was much smaller, was on the southern end of the site ... and this will triple the accommodation for families.
In the upper left with the curved roof is part of the original house.

Hi Alex ... Yes and No .. The USA has some big facilities and also some "normal"houses ... that's where the concept started and it is an interesting history if you get time to read about it. Our new house is designed for around 35-40 families.. Three times the size of the original
