A top health manager has likened a proposed Ronald McDonald House at the new Dunedin Hospital to accepting beer and cigarette sponsorship.
Yeah for a cheeseburger is just like a cigarette.
He also met with unnamed representatives from the charity in Christchurch on December 11, and received several emails from DHB staff supporting the facility.
“McDonald’s don’t run a drive-thru in the car park,” one said.
“We have stayed at Ronald McDonald House more times than I care to count and I cannot speak higher of a charity,” another said.
Exactly. This is not a mobile McDonalds store. It is simply a place where families of kids with cancer can stay.
