Through collaborations with local partners, we run a dental campaign every year where children's teeth are checked and fillings are made where necessary. We also work on preventative care and children are taught how to brush their teeth and told why this is so important. We have also been able to provide sight tests for children with noted difficilties and glasses have been provided where required.

Through our work with UK based NGO Two Weeks, we have begun annual check ups on children as medical Doctors come to volunteer with us for two week campaigns on an annual basis. This has provided an opportunity to provide basic health assessments and reviews, at the same time as give out information and advice to parents.

Our hopes for the future are that we will be able to secure funding or support which will enable us to provide a regular and permanent weekly clinic at the project including donations of medicines.
