Ronald McDonald House Charities
Main aim of the charity
Its mission is to develop and support programs that directly improve the health of children and their families. A Ronald House is a “home away from home” for low-income families who must travel to Lima, so that their minor child with a complex illness can receive the medical treatment they require.
How the employee got involved and why
I feel affinity with the cause because I have had relatives who have suffered from complex illnesses for a long time and I understand the challenges that must be faced, the emotional burden and the financial difficulties that must be overcome to help the one one loves.
I began in 2020 to learn about the mission of the shelter and knowing the challenges of the health system in my country and the number of people in this situation, I decided to join and also motivate DHL's involvement.
What work does the employee do for charity
I have participated in various activities with the Ronald McDonald House, from fundraising to participating with a monthly membership as a recurring donor.
Likewise, I have managed to initiate and strengthen an alliance between DHL and the organization in two years of work, which has been achieved with recognition by the shelter by placing a DHL plaque on the allies wall that they have in their site.
