In an Australian first, eight hospitals have united to cure homesickness. Curing Homesickness launches with a film about Ali, a little girl who represents hundreds of thousands of kids in Australian hospitals every year. Watch the film and see how brands, celebrities and the community can come together to cure homesickness.

Curing homesickness

Over the past six weeks there’s been an amazing effort from donors, volunteers and hospital staff who came together in so many inspirational ways to help sick kids during the 2019 Gold Telethon Appeal.

On Monday Gold Telethon was live on Channel Nine, where we threw the biggest pyjama party, featuring special guests, performances and the most inspiring patient stories, helping us raise $6,156,915 to help sick kids at Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick.

It’s still not too late to donate.

Fifty percent of children in hospital have been reported to suffer from moderate to high levels of homesickness and coming together to tackle this on behalf of all sick kids across Australia is an urgent cause we are proud to be a part of.

Supporting Curing Homesickness will help kids in hospital by ensuring the very best equipment, research and services available to get them home sooner. For families with long stays, it will help to make hospital a comfier and homelier environment. Join the campaign and together, let’s cure homesickness.
