Our extended family.

Our Relationship with McDonald’s

McDonald’s and it owner/operators, suppliers, employees and customers have called our mission their own since 1974. Due to their unwavering support, extending from monetary contributions to volunteerism, from board participation to media donations, has helped us impact countless lives by giving children support, stability and the best medicine of all – their families.

Although the McDonald’s system is our largest corporate partner, RMHC South Africa is a non-profit organisation and also rely on the support of the entire community and other foundations to donate through cash and/or in-kind contributions, your time or fundraising efforts to fund the growth of RMHC programs and services necessary to serve more families.

Our Relationship with the Medical Community

In order to improve the health and wellbeing of children RMHC South Africa relies on strong partnerships with the medical community – as evidenced in our partnership with Chris Hani Baragwanath Academic Hospital. We have a sound relationship since we launched the two Ronald McDonald Family Rooms.

Medical professionals contribute to RMHC in a variety of different ways:

  • They are actively engaged and supportive as committee members for programs in the their hospitals.
  • They provide land for Ronald McDonald Houses and/or spaces within hospitals for Ronald McDonald Family Rooms.
  • They assist with operating costs and donations of in-kind services.
  • They volunteer their time and services on Ronald McDonald Care Mobiles and with other programs.
