RECIPES FOR PREVENTION: SCHOOL FOR ORPHANS
ICARE volunteers, a group of active young dentists hosted the first ever prevention programme at Imamen Jawaden orphanage and school in Baghdad, Iraq. We served 112 children with an educational show about how to look after their oral health, correct brushing techniques and frequency as well as the importance of healthy eating and which foods they should avoid. We then gave each child an ICARE prevention pack with a tooth brush, tooth paste, dental floss, two kids educational brochures (in Arabic) and a gift toy.We had an absolute blast launching this project. The kids enjoyed it as much as we did! They were jumping and joining in the teaching session with questions, answers and commentary! THANK YOU to all our donors without you this project would'nt be possible.
Thank you to our team of ICARE volunteers Dr. Abdullah Al Khannaq, Dr. Hussen Ali, Dr. Assil Russell, Dr. Shahad Al Ebadi for putting smiles back on Iraqi children's faces.
DARE 2 CARE
"The power of "WE" is the understanding that a piece of string will
never be as strong as a piece of rope made up of many strings.
By working together we can create change. If you substitute I for WE,
ICARE becomes WE Care and Illness becomes WEllness".
