Open Door - Rapha House

The installation in progress

Open Door, managed by Reverend Chum Gon Hwang, is a group of projects mainly concerned with helping children who have had to be removed from abusive or neglectful home situations. Rapha House is a home for 13 boys. Reverend Hwang and his wife manage several homes for children of different ages, where they can enjoy stability, love and appropriate behavioural counselling and therapy. The children all attend local schools. 

In October, Rapha House reported an urgent need to replace their hot water and heating boilers, just as the winter set in. The existing units were beyond economical repair.

BASS, ANZA and The AWC Thrift Store responded to this request together, each contributing approximately one third of the cost and allowing the work to be completed promptly.
