Guatemala has one of the worst dental services Guatemala has one of the worst dental services in the world, ranking only behind Haiti.
Most of the children here have never received any dental treatment or dental education in their lives besides the treatment that they have received by our program. According to information given by the principals of the local schools, the percentage of students with cavities has reached 77%. This is a tremendous problem because many of the families already do not have enough money to afford basic necessities, like food. That, compounded with the lack of access to quality dental treatment which is very detrimental to the health of the children in many cases.
Throughout the last year in 2015, Kamalbe Mobile Clinics have managed to provide assistance to 350 children; however, the situation in Guatemala is still severe and we need help to keep running the program and reach our goals.
Thanks to the agreement between Kamalbe School and Universidad del Valle de Guatemala, Quetzaltenango, its Dental School helps provide us fluoride application, dental extractions, and lectures for children in the communities of Salcaja and Xecanchavox. We also assist some parents with minor dental treatment, and all the treatments are free to the children.
Kamalbe Clinics have the goals of reducing the number of children with dental cavities and assisting local schools with their education. We are not only trying to avoid dental problems, but also create a healthy culture through educational programs for the kids by teaching how important it is to take care of their own teeth and general health.
Many rural families do not have access to general health services, therefore our free services are fundamental to assist dental health as well as reduce costs for rural families so that this money can instead be put towards feeding their family. We are expecting to assist over 400 children during the year of 2016.
All donations are important to us, no matter how big or small. All we need is $1.65 per child to cover expenses and to keep the program running. Making a small donation of $5 would provide services to 3 children, and a donation of $10 would mean you are helping at least 7 children!
Even though the dentist professionals donate their time and service, there is some cost for their transportation that we have to cover. The money will be used to buy medication (Ibuprofen, panadol, winasorb, amoxilina, acitromicina, gloves, bags for disposal, transportation of equipment, etc.), proper chairs for dental treatment, as well as other supplies such as syringes and needles, gloves, anesthesia. We really appreciate your help, time, and support of the project for the children in the community of Xecanchavox and El Tigre in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala.
