The Ronald McDonald House and Oasis, located on the premises of the Altona Children’s Hospital in Hamburg, offers the families of seriously ill or injured children a home away from home and a place of comfort. In December 2015, Petra van Bremen-Kubenz, photo model and wife of KUBE & KUBENZ Managing Director Michael Kubenz, has taken over patronage for the house and oasis and now forms part of the patrons-duo together with Maren Otto. Since 2014, the Ronald McDonald House has been accommodating around 250 families a year, while their children are being treated at the hospital.
„When a child is seriously ill or injured, parents, siblings or other caregivers can aid the recovery – simply by being there for them. During difficult times, the Ronald McDonald House offers families a temporary home and a place to be comforted together,” says Petra van Bremen-Kubenz, who has been involved in several charity projects for years. “It is my pleasure and truly an honour to be involved in this project and to accept the patronage for this institution next to Maren Otto.”
Since 2015, the forwarding company KUBE & KUBENZ has been taking over the running costs for an apartment at the Ronald McDonald House and Oasis at the Altona Children’s Hospital. The company will continue this support in 2016.
