Bringing the Christmas Magic to Sick Kids
Hospital is the last place you would choose to spend Christmas, particularly when you’re a kid.
But thanks to generous support from the community, there were plenty of smiles on the faces of sick kids at Flinders Medical Centre and Noarlunga Hospital on Christmas Day.
Flinders Foundation, together with Star Discount Chemists and Influences Church, collected gifts from the community as part of the annual Christmas Giving Tree program.
Gifts were then delivered to children in the Flinders Medical Centre Paediatric Ward and Paediatric Emergency Department, and the Noarlunga Hospital Emergency Department to make sure they didn’t miss out on the Christmas magic.
Thank you for helping to keep our heroes safe!
Because of you, more hospital staff can now be fitted with the correct face masks to wear when caring for patients with suspected airborne diseases or respiratory infections, like COVID-19.
“We wanted to thank the nursing staff in the ward in particular as they went above and beyond for us to care for Dad.”
