DENTAL ( H.E.L.P )

About

Dental health is taken for granted in many developed countries; however, according to the World Health Organisation, 60-90% of school children and nearly 100% of adults around the world have dental cavities. These statistics are highest among the poor and disadvantaged communities. In order to combat this problem in the refugee community, HR3 in collaboration with Hampton Roads Ecumenical Lodgings and Provisions (H.E.L.P.) started the dental assistance program, which is a dental charity to help those in need of oral care. The charity aims to provide tailored oral health education programs for the refugees. The program also aims to raise funds to allow refugees to use oral health services such as dentists. This program is funded by donations we receive.
