"Thank you for your donations!"
We received messages from House users.

The operation of Ronald McDonald Houses is funded 100% by donations and various support from many people. The Houses are facilities that provide a place where families can stay at with true peace of mind for 1,000 yen per person per day, reducing the emotional, physical and financial burden on children that are hospitalized or need to visit regularly who are fighting sicknesses every day and the families that support them.
There are 12 Houses nationwide (as of June 2023), built adjacent to and within easy reach of hospitals.
Ronald McDonald Houses have been used by many families. Please see some of the messages from the families that have visited.


As receipts will be issued, they will be subject to tax deductions.
Support can be offered to specific Houses of your choice such as those in your neighborhood.
