Giving a helping hand
This past year we have continued to work with Dentaid, a UK based charity whose aim is to improve oral health around the world one smile at a time. With an increasing demand for their support Astek were only too happy to assist Dentaid with a donation of dental products. Jill Harding of Dentaid said:
Astek’s great donation of dental supplies will be incredibly helpful for our volunteering teams who treat patients around the world, some of those treatments will be done within the refugee camps in Greece. We are also sending out packages of dental supplies to Uganda, Sri Lanka, Panama and Cambodia. Each package includes some of the donations kindly sent to us by Astek. We have a volunteering team going to Panama from October 1-16 who will use the donations for outreach projects in parts of the country where access to dentistry is very limited. And the project in Sri Lanka is a new one for us and we are only able to do this work thanks to donations like yours.
