7th Report  Nov 2013

Nairobi Kenya

Dear Friends,

We are so happy to report the overall success of our new nonprofit, DentCare Kenya. In addition to focusing on teeth, we also provide information to individuals on their overall health. Recently we offered a clinic at the Red Rose school in Kibera, Nairobi’s largest slum area.  Obtaining dental screenings and services is very difficult in this area.

We screened over 200 students on Saturday afternoon, Oct 12, 2013.  Parents and students were so eager to receive screenings that they came in to the school on a Saturday.  The number was more than expected by the school administrator, Paul.

The school administrator, Paul, said that most of the students at his school were orphans and from single parent homes.  He said, “The offering of this dental clinic goes a long way in helping these kids understand the importance of brushing one’s teeth and eating healthy foods.”  He welcomed the free dental clinic and hopes that it can be a regular event at the school.

I am gratified that I can be a part of offering free and reduced cost dental services to the people of Kenya who would otherwise go without care due to poor financial abilities.

We are very indebted to you for supporting us in our efforts to improve the oral health care of the needy in Kenya.

You are making a huge difference!

With gratitude,

David
