Kids West is fortunate to be supported by the following corporate partners and sponsors. We thank them for their generosity and commitment to helping families in Western Sydney. Please support Kids West by supporting them.
Kids West assisted a mother of 3 young children who’s husband left suddenly taking everything, by donating goods, helping with bills, food and Christmas presents. Later we received a letter: “Dear Kids West, We’re back on our feet and doing well, please find enclosed a cheque for $200 to help another family this Christmas”
Our son may not be with us today if it wasn’t for Kids West. We know by the plaque on the Humidi Crib we saw every day for the 2 months our son was in intensive care; it was donated by Kids West. That equipment kept our son, born at 28 weeks suffering from lung failure amongst other things, alive.
Kids West were approached about a small remote town called Coolah, trying to raise funds for a Defibrillator that could be used on young children. The Hospital had managed to raise $5,000 towards the $10,000 machine. Kids West donated the remaining $5,000. 3 years later the Defibrillator was used to save a 6 year olds life on a remote farm.
