Our work at Land & Life Foundation always aims to give help to the people and places that need it most. Arusha Plaster House is one of the best examples where we’ve made a real, positive change for the children of our local communities.
Working with Elewana’s Arusha Coffee Lodge, we’ve been supporting this home for children who need surgery since 2008 and we’ve seen it grow from a small set up in a guest house to a thriving centre providing surgery, therapy and education.
What exactly is Arusha Plaster House?
- It’s a medical centre that provides pre and post surgery care for up to 100 children at a time
- It performs corrective surgery and has specialist orthopedic, plastic and neurosurgeons to help children live the lives they want to
- It provides therapeutic services for the kids when they’re staying there, to make sure they’re ready to get back to their community after surgery
- It even has a classroom so having an operation doesn’t mean missing out on vital education
The real success of the Plaster House is that it turns what can often be a negative or traumatic experience for children into something where they receive expert treatment in a clean environment, surrounded by professional medical and care staff. The children leave Plaster House as stronger people, both physically and mentally.
Our efforts in supporting the centre in partnership with Arusha Coffee Lodge helping put smiles on the faces of hundreds of children. Remember, by encouraging people to stay at Elewana’s Arusha Coffee Lodge and support Plaster House, you are also contributing to those smiles.
As always it’s a team effort to be proud of, every day, and thanks for all your support in helping make the difference.
