Greeting from Nicola

23 August 2021

Times of uncertainty often bring about great possibility, and this is something I have observed frequently in recent times. While the effects of COVID-19 are still having a profound impact on us all, I am overwhelmed with the support that people like you demonstrate in order to help sick kids and their families.  As individuals, we each have the power to make a difference, but collectively you are helping to cement incredible change in paediatric healthcare.

The latest COVID-19 outbreak in Sydney and lockdowns throughout NSW has put extra pressure on hospital staff across Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network, as they continue to care for hundreds of children in the community directly affected by the pandemic. We are seeing a significant increase in the number of children being diagnosed with COVID-19, and we understand it can be a worrying time for children and their families.

It's thanks to people like you, that we’re able to support the front line during these challenging times.
