Welcome to One World One Smile
One World One Smile is a nonprofit organization based in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. We are dedicated to providing dental health care and oral hygiene awareness to children and under-resourced communities across Tanzania. Poor oral health is a major risk factor that can escalate the severity of other health issues such as HIV/AIDS and diabetes, both of which are prevalent in Tanzania. In order to prevent complications from oral disease and mortality we seek to bring dental health care to communities where it is most needed.
CALL TO ACTION!
THREE last volunteer dentists/maxillofacial surgeons urgently needed for a dental camp at the Nyarugusu refugee camp in Kigoma, Tanzania.
We are also in urgent need of consumables: local anaesthesia, needle, surgical blades#15, gauzes, resorbable sutures, gloves – Medium and large – medication, extraction instruments
More hands will help more people in the four day camp – this is an area where there is usually no dental care provision.
We are working with the UNHCR and Tanzanian Red Cross Society, to provide a dental care camp between the 14th-17th August for Burundian, Rwandan, and Congolese in a refugee camp north of Tanzania.
English speaking is required (at least a little :-)), flights to Tanzania will need to be paid for, by yourself, you would need to be in Tanzania from the 11th-19th September, there may be some minor expenses on site but no more than 300$ per person if local flights are not sponsored by a local airline company.
Please if you want to help however way you choose/can 🙂 – Namaste
