Healthy smiles

Due to the pandemic that has affected the entire world, the health sector has been in a difficult situation as it has focused on solving Covid-19 related care needs. The subsidy system that covers children's health issues has had several restrictions so that urgent procedures are not a priority and dental and audiometry appointments are not available.


Thanks to the support and generosity of everyone, we have been able to guarantee priority and urgent attention by a dentist, who to date has attended 27 cases of children who come to CRAN with serious hygiene and oral health issues.
Most of the children, who come from Venezuela, arrive with oral health complications where many of them lose their teeth due to lack of hygiene which causes gingivitis and even more serious difficulties.


Your solidarity has allowed 35 children to take their audiometry exams and controls, which, like dentistry, was not possible to obtain through the subsidized network. Likewise, we were able to take the children directly to the specialists and we were able to give them the examinations and medicines they were prescribed.

Medical evaluations and examinations are also fundamental in the development process of our children. Precisely determining their health status is key to finding the best adoptive family that can guarantee their care. The assistance and follow-up of health treatments are possible thanks to the fact that there is always a caregiver available to accompany them in safe transportation.

Thank you very much!

Debido a la pandemia que ha afectado al mundo entero, el sector de salud se ha visto en una situación difícil puesto que se ha enfocado en cubrir las necesidades de atención relacionadas con el Covid-19. El sistema de subsidio que cubre los temas de salud de los niños ha tenido varias restricciones por lo que los procedimientos urgentes no son prioritarios y no es posible acceder a citas de odontología y audiometría.

Gracias al apoyo y generosidad de todos, hemos podido garantizar la atención prioritaria y urgente por parte de una odontóloga, que al día de hoy, ha atendido 27 casos de niños y niñas que ingresan a CRAN con temas de higiene y salud oral graves.

La mayoría de los niños que provienen de nacionalidad venezolana, llegan con complicaciones de salud oral en donde muchos de ellos pierden sus dientes debido a falta de higiene lo que provoca gingivitis e incluso dificultades más serias.

Su solidaridad ha permitido que 35 niños hayan tomado sus exámenes y controles de audiometría, que al igual que la odontología, por medio de la red subsidiada no fue posible obtener. Así mismo, logramos llevar a los niños directamente con los especialistas y pudimos practicarles los exámenes y darles las medicinas que les formulan.

Las valoraciones y los exámenes médicos son además fundamentales en el proceso de desarrollo de nuestros niños. Determinar con precisión el estado de salud es clave para encontrar la mejor familia adoptante que pueda garantizar su cuidado. La asistencia y seguimiento de los tratamientos de salud son posibles gracias a que siempre hay una cuidadora disponible que los acompaña en un transporte seguro. 

¡Muchas gracias!
