About the Cause
Located in Liverpool, England, Alder Hey Children's Hospital has been a source of optimism for sick children and their families for over a century. Since its establishment in 1914, the hospital has served as a regional specialist center, catering to more than 330,000 patients annually across the North West of England and beyond. Recognizing the constraints of even the most advanced medical facilities, Alder Hey Children's Charity steps in to bring additional support and magic to the healing process.
Acting as a vital lifeline, Alder Hey Children's Charity raises funds to enhance the hospital's capabilities with state-of-the-art technology, groundbreaking research, and heartwarming "extras" that significantly impact a child's recovery. From life-saving medical equipment to therapeutic playrooms and art therapy sessions, the charity transforms the hospital environment into a place of hope and healing.
Alder Hey Children's Charity goes beyond physical infrastructure, impacting a wide range of childhood illnesses, including cancer, heart disease, mental health challenges, and neurological disorders. Their funding supports specialized equipment like MRI scanners and robotic surgical instruments, enabling precise and minimally invasive procedures with faster recovery times.
The magic extends beyond technology, as art therapy programs provide a creative outlet for children to express their emotions, while dedicated play specialists bring joy back into their lives. In 2023, the charity introduced the innovative "Alder Centre" bereavement suite, offering a warm and compassionate space for grieving families.
A powerful statistic highlights the charity's impact: over 95% of children treated at Alder Hey survive their illnesses, a testament to the exceptional care provided by the hospital staff supported by Alder Hey Children's Charity. Each donation, volunteer hour, and act of kindness contributes to weaving miracles, one spark of hope at a time.
