In-hospital Respite Fund

When you child is born with, or develops, a congenital heart disease, your whole world comes to a standstill.

Your only concern is for your child’s life which hangs in the balance and as a result, you may spend several weeks/months living in and between CHI Crumlin. However, bills will still need to be paid and the day-to-day living expenses of accommodation, food and even parking can mount up while your child is in hospital. You may not be able to work during this period and financial support can be much-needed to help you through this troubling time.

Heart Children provides this funding to parents on application from the social work team in CHI Crumlin. We provide this funding – typically €300 – to help lessen the financial burden for parents. 

The financial support we provide to parents of children with CHD in hospital can be a godsend at a time when their finances are stretched to the limit. Your donation will help us bring relief to people at this most difficult of times.
