NFO run yearly dental hygiene lessons for the children at our schools. We provide them with a toothbrush and toothpaste to take home with them after we show them the correct way to brush their teeth.
We have also had assistance from our partner, Right 2 Smile, with teaching the children and assisting with the supplies needed for these lessons as we have so many children to get to!
The cost of dental in Cambodia can be anywhere from USD$5 to USD$50 or more and most families in rural areas are unable to afford this. By providing them with lessons, toothbrushes and toothpaste, we hope to help them understand that if they take care of their teeth they won't need to go to the dentist as often.
We need your help with this!
For as little as USD$2 per child we supply them with a toothbrush and toothpaste at our dental lessons. That's less than a cup of coffee!
