The Plaster House is a pediatric rehabilitative surgery program in Arusha, Tanzania that enables children to access corrective orthopedic, plastic and neurosurgery, as well as pre- and post-operative care for disabilities such as clubfoot, burns, cleft lip and palate, hydrocephalus and spina bifida. It was established in 2008 to provide a unique and loving home away from home while children undergo surgery and rehabilitate.
The Bozeman Community has been instrumental in the continued success of The Plaster House. In February 2018, through donations both large and small, The Plaster House expanded to include a new dormitory, additional clinic space, an administrative building and a volunteer apartment house named “Bozeman House.”
Many in rural Tanzania believe that children born with disabilities are cursed by evil spirits and are therefore shunned. The Plaster House works to change this perception through its extensive outreach program. HEALING INDIVIDUALS. TRANSFORMING THE COMMUNITY.
At intermission, join us upstairs in the Light Box to learn more about The Plaster House. Bozeman community members will be available to answer your questions and will be showing a slideshow. Looking forward to seeing you!
