The Manx Association for the Welfare of Children in Hospital
In 1986 the Manx Association was formed and registered as a Charity in the Isle of Man.
It established a tradition of combining a campaign for improved hospital facilities, attitudes and practices with practical help for parents so that no sick child need be without the support of a parent, day or night.
Their funds come from the Annual ‘Frog Frolic' race held each year in early summer in Castletown and the generous donations from members and the general public.
Donations to the Children's Ward have included amongst other things, fold up beds to enable parents to stay with their sick child.
Assistance with travel to and from hospital and off Island subsistence is also available for local parents.
If you want to help sick children and their parents, MAWCH is the Group to join.
