Koala Kids Foundation is a volunteer driven organisation that provides small things that make a difference to the lives of children and young people during cancer treatment and their families in Victoria.
For more than 10 years we have been providing quality educational and entertaining activities, therapeutic items and consumables to distract, comfort and engage young patients from the pain associated with cancer treatment.
Koala Kids is active in the Children's Cancer Centres at The Royal Children's Hospital and Monash Children's Hospital, the Pediatric Radiotherapy Service and Adolescent and Young Adult Service at Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre and nine treatment hospitals in regional Victoria.
We work hard to ensure we don’t duplicate the support provided by other charities. We have minimal operational costs, working from donated office and warehouse space. We source all of our consumables and programs as donations, at cost or heavily discounted.
