Welcome to The Saoirse Foundation
Making positive life impacts for sick children
We are a registered Irish not-for-profit charity dedicated to making positive life impacts for critically and seriously ill children throughout the island of Ireland.
We raise funds to deliver services and supports to these sick children; we help fund vital research; and we provide guidance and information for their carers and families.
Our 3 major initiatives
BUMBLEance is the first fully interactive ambulance on the planet specially designed for children. The high-spec BUMBLEance offers children safe and stress-free trips, as well as providing a wide range of entertainment on board to distract and entertain our young patients.
