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.

Fading eastern light over western NSW plains on re-entry to Sydney.  Tough visit to Nepal this time. Struggling economy, massive inflation, increasing suicide rates, fewer and fewer jobs. Small wonder the drain of young people coursing out of the country, mainly aged 18-30 years, continues to grow. On average 3-4000 per day.  Villages are emptying. Schools are closing due to falling numbers of students.  Families are breaking up, leaving the parents to grow into either a lonely retirement in Nepal or face moving to another country where they are with their kids and grandkids but without their daily neighbours and local community.  It’s great to see so many beautiful Nepalese working and helping in Australia and other countries, and seeking opportunities they can’t find in their home country but the social, structural and political fracturing back in Nepal is deepening. The next few years will be very interesting.  Namaste!!🙏🏽 🙏🏽
