A PLACE TO RECOVER IN TANZANIA
Plaster House is a home in Arusha, Tanzania, where children recover after having corrective surgery. Plaster House started with six beds in 2007, grew to look after 80 children, and now care for more than one hundred recovering kids. In 2016, Plaster House launched a fundraising campaign to expand their facility so they won’t have to turn down families in need of their crucial services. We were introduced to the director of Plaster House, Sarah Rejman, by a mutual friend, and signed on to create a video to introduce the organization to potential donors. Working from San Francisco, we interviewed Sarah via Skype, sketched out a script, and spent a day at Plaster House shooting footage while on a recent trip to Tanzania. Upon our return home, we edited and produced the video to tell their story and to make a case for their inspiring and critical work.
