RECIPES FOR PREVENTION
ICARE’s Recipes for Prevention aims to provide health education and awareness to impoverished Iraqi children and their families. This involves providing information about causes of diseases such as dental caries (decay), the role of diet in maintaining health and the importance of parental health as a contributing factor to many childhood diseases. General and Oral hygiene instruction is provided. Children and families are taught how to correctly clean (brush and floss) their teeth and are given free healthcare packs which include products such as dental tooth brushes, tooth paste and floss and hand sanitisers. Families are also given healthy food parcels and warm clothes and blankets for winter. This project is based on preventive medicine & dentistry and aims to strengthen the personal skills of impoverished Iraqis so that they can gain control over their own health and wellbeing.

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".
