This village in the mountainous region of Dolakha, where dental care has never been given before, 500 children, plus some adults actually suffering from dental pain, have received dental checks, treatment, and taught how to look after their teeth. Children, parents, teachers and women volunteer health assistants have also been given education into the reasons for dental care and hygiene and given the opportunity to practice cor...rect hand washing technique and the right way to brush their teeth. Donated toothbrushes and toothpaste were distributed to everyone. The Nestling Trust would like to thank Bikram Malar and Kantipur Dental College for their enthusiasm, determination and hard work in making this event possible.
Gales, thunder and lightning greeted the team as they arrived in the village high in the mountains but this never dampened their spirits. Thankfully each day was hot and sunny so families were able to trek from the far outlying areas. Check out the photos.
