Ranui House

Owned and operated by the Bone Marrow Cancer Trust, Ranui House provides a home away from home for out of town families across New Zealand, whose loved ones are undergoing hospital-based medical treatment in Christchurch. By providing a home for these families at Ranui House, we help towards reducing the stress these families face. We provide family apartments and a supportive environment, dependent on the generous and continued support of people just like you.

Keeping Families Together

As countless families have experienced firsthand, enabling families to stay in everyday contact with their loved ones during treatment plays a vital role in not only a patient’s emotional wellbeing during treatment, but well beyond. Families typically stay while the patient is in hospital, even if children are attending local schools. If patients are well enough, they’re also able to spend time at Ranui, returning to hospital for treatment when required.
