Dental Health for El Remate

Dentistry for All and Project Ix-canaan have expanded their partnership with a program to bring more extensive dental health to El Remate. Alex, who has worked for several years in the Ix-canaan library, has been hired to run the El Remate Dental Health Program.

Dentistry for All has been coming to the village for 1 or 2 weeks every spring to do cleanings, fillings and extractions for more than 350 people per week. With this expansion to the program, Alex will be going into the schools and groups around the village throughout the year, educating the kids and minimising their chances of future problems.

Your donation can help SAVE LIVES…

DIABETES is common. 1/3 of the village of El Remate cannot access drinkable water and coca cola is cheaper than bottled water. Many children, who have been raised on soda pop, experience SEVERE health problems from being “sugar babies” (incl. mental problems).

The rate of ASTHMA is extremely high. Mothers hold their little ones close to wood burning stoves as they cook dinner, and children inhale major toxic pollutants, leading to terrible respiratory problems. You can help our medical clinic provide FREE MEDICINE to families in need.

If you are unable to attend and would like to donate in lieu of, PayPal donations are available.

Donations to our silent auction are GREATLY appreciated. For further information, Please contact:
