For nearly 20 years tooth brushes and tooth paste have been part of the packages for our sponsored children. Also large amounts of tooth paste and tooth brushes have been distrbuted during info events teaching school children how to brush your teeth properly. Unfortunately dentists are rare in Nepal and treatment is expensive. Prevention and dental treatment are therefore non-existent.
We have now found a dental clinic in Kathmandu whose mobile team of experts carries out dental check ups and treatment. Several hundred children in our project villages have now received dental care.
