Mission of the Foundation

Our mission is to offer children in the hospital and
their families support to be able to live a better life.

To do so, we will contribute to the following;

  • Support patients and their families by building/operating Houses
  • Develop a Volunteer Culture
  • Create a system that has society support medical care


At present, there are 140,000 children across the country suffering from intractable diseases and when the families of such children are considered, the number of people in distress is expected to be several times higher

When children are hospitalized, a huge burden is placed on their families such as an economic strain due to being forced to lead double lives between their homes and the hospital and emotional anguish from having to live apart.
To be able to provide even just a little support to such families, Ronald McDonald House Charities Japan was established to build accommodation facilities run by volunteers near the hospitals that the children are in where their families can spend some relaxing time with a feeling of safety.
Ronald McDonald House is an activity that is spread out globally with over 360 houses currently being operated around the world.
As shown above, the purpose of this foundation is to contribute to building a system that has society as a whole offer support for the burden that the families of the patients carry.

Family Centered Care

Family Centered Care (care centering on the family) is based on the philosophy that the highest value is placed on medical care that is offered from the viewpoint of helping patients, their families and the community and fulfilling their needs.
Ronald McDonald House plays an important role in supporting and promoting Family Centered Care. Although it is not our mission to provide direct medical care to children, DMHC enables family-centered care by supporting families throughout their healthcare journey. The accommodation and support that Ronald McDonald House offers children in the hospital and their families are not only beneficial; they are essential for effective medical treatment of high quality.
