About Rosemarie’s House
Rosemarie’s House is the most recent of our 4 foster Houses. It is also the largest and home to 9 children. It was purchased in 2009 and named in memory of our late director Rosemarie Bevis. Rosemarie and Neville moved to Malawi in 2000 to take over the running of Open Arms, but Rosemarie tragically lost her battle with Ovarian Cancer in 2006. We are delighted to be able to name Rosemarie’s House after a truly inspirational lady.

The children attend Ladybird International School, together with the Rose’s House boys.
