Clarice Brambilla Sarah Fox Children’s Convalescent Hospital, Silvertown
Sarah Fox Children’s Convalescent Hospital is a recovery centre for children aged 0 to 6, based in Silvertown, Athlone.
The hospital is an NPO, only partially funded by the Department of Health. Therefore we are always in need of funds and generous donors.
This year’s Mandela Day was a blast: we were glad and thrilled to see how many members of the community decided to drop by and bring donations.
Between private donors and companies, the hospital has a full month of nappy supplies, face wipes and canned food.
Our supporters helped us repaint the dining room and all our fences in the backyard. They also helped us with gardening and as a result our garden looks clean and tidy now, a much safer environment for our children to play in.
Our staff lounge room was renovated as well, and our staff members can now enjoy quiet breaks in-between shifts.
Overall, the Sarah Fox staff members would like to thank the community for all the help and support. You have all made a difference.
A special thank you also to all the staff members at Sarah Fox, who come in to work with a smile on their faces every day and with the goal of making the children’s future better and brighter.
Well done to you all.
If you want to come and visit, help us with general maintenance or drop a donation, we are based at 6 Petunia Road, Silvertown, Athlone.
