About this project

According to the World Health Organization, one in every two children suffers from cavities, because the treatment is too expansive or not locally available. We want to send a team of 10 persons/dentists to South Africa, to give free treatments to about 200 children, along with training for teachers to provide dental health education to children. Currently, there is only one dentist responsible for Paternoster, South Africa, which is not enough and means our help is absolutely necessary! Employees from participating dental practices in Germany take vacation for the trip voluntarily and without any salary compensation. The children need our help next year and are looking forward to seeing us again.
