Muddy Puddles Foundation supports South Australian children fighting chronic and complex
bowel and bladder conditions requiring surgical interventions.
We connect these little warriors, and their families, with one another so that they can see they’re not alone in their sometimes very private and painful struggles.
Muddy Puddles children rely on the help of their parents and carers to help them to empty their bladders and bowels every day. They are very used to hospitals and have had more surgeries than most of us could ever imagine.
By giving to this foundation, you will be supporting these children and their families directly to ensure they get to have some awesome experiences that they may not ordinarily be able to have without support.
Some of these experiences include:
Family fun days with specialist art or sport sessions for the children
Overnight camps for affected children and their families where medical and therapeutic support is offered
Play Therapy for affected children to help them work through the medical trauma that many of them suffer as a result of numerous and ongoing medical procedures
Early Preventative Therapies to hopefully reduce the impact of medical trauma in their teen and adult years
Break out groups for mums and dads (together and separately) to discuss research based interventions for their child’s complex conditions and to give psychological support where needed
Maintaining and sustaining the connections made between affected children to ensure they are constantly reminded they are not alone and that their experiences can be valued and understood
