It’s all about people…
The Plaster House is a home away from home for children being treated for a correctable disability. This special home needs special people - people who bring understanding, professionalism and love.

The dedicated and compassionate professionals who make The Plaster House a family.
Director and Founder of The Plaster House.
In 2002, Sarah arrived in Tanzania to volunteer at Huduma ya Walemavu a rehabilitation centre for the disabled in the town of Monduli, not far from Arusha. After two years working in Monduli, she went to Melbourne to work for 18 months, but could not shake the feeling that she should be back in Tanzania.
Sarah returned to Arusha to work at Selian Lutheran Hospital in 2006 and together with Mr Murila, orthopaedic surgeon, established the Selian Orthopedic Institute – now known as the Rehab Surgery Programme.
She remains hugely enthused about accessing and treating marginalized children with disabilities. Together with The Plaster House Team, Sarah plans on doubling the number of patients treated annually through the program and providing the best care possible to children with disabilities.
