SUPPORTING FAMILIES IN THEIR HOMES
We launched Koala Kids happy base early in the pandemic to be able to provide support to families given we were unable to have contact with them in some hospitals. We are now safely storing details from more than 100 families and we are enjoying talking directly to them about the therapeutic items we have and the monthly activities and resources we can send them in their homes.
Koala Kids vision is to touch every child and young person and their families during cancer treatment and we hope our happy base will make it all the more achievable.
Happy base families have enjoyed virtual cooking, craft and science workshops as well as activity packs and therapeutic resources. Thanks to a generous benefactor, 12 families are chosen each month to receive a delicious meal box from Treat Catering. And of course, every child in treatment on the happy base receives a magnificent chocolate pinata smash cake on their birthday!
