2014 Plaster House News

October 30, 2014

Volunteers Elena Mantz and Ingrid Eggert were honored by the staff and children of Plaster House with a concert of song followed by cake for all. In addition to serving at Selian Lutheran CDH and ALMC, Dr. Mantz has conducted a weekly clinic for the children of Plaster House for the past year. Ingrid teaches English, math and art for the younger children. The following video shows some of the singing, a brief recognition and a few still photos.

In addition to the sixty children recovering from surgery, Plaster House took in 50+ more children awaiting orthopedic and plastic surgery when Bill Brown and his team from Denver, Colorado operate next week. Many of the children, especially those still nursing, were accompanied by their mothers, some by fathers or village elders. Without enough beds to house everyone, we set up 3 safari-style tents to house the temporary overflow. The children were screened medically and will be evaluated for surgery this coming weekend. Below is a slideshow of the festive atmosphere at Plaster House this past week. Click the photo to see the slideshow.
