Koala Kids Foundation is a volunteer driven organisation that provides the small things that make a big difference to the lives of children and young people in cancer treatment and their families in Victoria.
For 10 years we have been providing educational and entertaining activities and quality consumables to distract, comfort and engage young patients from the pain associated with the pediatric cancer journey.
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 hospitals in regional regional Victoria.
We work hard to ensure we don’t duplicate the work of other charities and have minimal operational costs, working from donated office and warehouse spaces. We source all of our consumables and programs as donations, at cost or heavily discounted.
