What We Do

At the Saoirse Foundation we help sick children across Ireland. We offer much needed support, guidance and information to families. As our charity has continued to grow we have been able to help more critically ill children nationwide. We provide different services and supports through our three initiatives:


BUMBLEance is the Children’s National Ambulance Service. We transport critically ill children across the country in comfort. We understand the stress of transporting a critically ill child and we are here to help. We want to create a world where the fear of an ambulance journey no longer exists for a child. BUMBLEance delivers smiles to critically ill children.
