LauraLynn is a Children’s Hospice based in the county of Dublin. It provides support for children with life-limiting conditions and residential care for children and young adults with disabilities.
Dealing with Covid-19
Children with life-limiting conditions are especially vulnerable to the virus. Without LauraLynn, families affected by the virus might feel like they have nowhere else to turn.
The Hospital Saturday Fund Covid-19 Grant
The Hospital Saturday Fund recently donated €2,200 towards the purchase of PPE equipment at LauraLynn. This donation was part of many that have been granted through our new Covid-19 Grant – hospitalsaturdayfund.org/covid-19-grant/
Response to the Grant
We are going through about 400 face masks a week in the hospice. These masks had previously cost thirteen cents and now it is €1.23 a mask! That’s an unexpected extra spend of nearly €500 per week. Your grant would help keep our children, staff and families safe for a month. These are unprecedented times and LauraLynn is doing everything we can to keep many of Ireland’s most vulnerable little children safe at this time. We could not be fulfilling this role and elevating our crisis-care bed capacity without wonderful organisations and individuals like yourselves – thank you.
