This year we would like to increase the focus on childrens' health - most importantly, on their teeth.
There is no kind of yearly teeth cleaning or upkeep. Very little funds are available from the government and only for taking care of emergencies.
The situation is desperate.
You can help children get dental care for as little as $10 a check-up and repairing a few cavities would only cost about $20. According to the director of the orphanage, 30 children are in desperate need of dental work, and at least 100 need some kind of work done this year.
You can also help by sending toothbrushes and dental floss to be distributed among the children.
Every little bit helps!
If you would like to get involved, we would love to hear from you.
