ABCD provides care to 583 kids and families

In March 2019 three volunteer dentists from Australia travelled to Bangladesh to join the local dental teams, members of the Rotary Club of Dhaka, and coordinators from the NGO Forum for Public Health to deliver dental care in 2 rural areas and Dhaka. A total of 902 patients were screened, with 583 needing dental treatment.  Dr Sunny’s personality lived up to her name as she engaged with the children and parents to provide oral hygiene advice.

The teams were well accommodated in Rotarians’ country homes, a huge thanks to Mehedi and Khaliq and families and local staff for your generous hospitality, and for your commitment to improving the health of the rural populations.

The ABCD program continues to provide dental care in disadvantaged schools in Dhaka through monthly visits.

Huge thanks to the Rotary Club of Dhaka, the dental teams – dentists and technicians, NGOF, the drivers, and community members for working together to improve the oral health of poor and rural people in Bangladesh.

Uni of Newcastle team last year in Arubot.... folks, thanks to Surya at left, TT can continue to support the reconstruction of lost homes. The villagers welcome you to return and see how people are rebuilding their lives. Namaste and Laso!! ...

Thanks Australian Dental Association for these magnificent flowers. It was an honour to be invited by the ADA to share information about TT’s Nepal activities, with dentists young and not so young. ...

One of the recipients of the latest round of funds raised by TT’s helpers to support post-earthquake reconstruction in Nepal. Arjun and his family have lived in a rudimentary shelter for more than 4 years; our subsidy has allowed him to finally build this small home, completed this week. Arjun is of the BK caste, considered one of the lowest and untouchable castes. One of my always-memories is the moment his piercing eyes of deep gratitude melted my insides as I handed him the key to his family toilet in 2014. Dignity. ...

Young Prem, all materials to this building site are brought in by manual labour ...
