On Friday the 8th of June, Bridge2Aid (a charity providing sustainable emergency dental training) is holding its national day to help raise awareness and funds for millions of people in East Africa who don’t have access to safe emergency dental care.
Bridge2Aid believes that everybody has the right to safe emergency dental care. The charity’s vision is a world without dental pain, and its long-term plan is to be able to provide emergency dental training to any country that needs it.
So, to help Bridge2Aid achieve its goals and be part of this very special event, Smile in Pink 2018, all you need to do (in the words of Bridge2Aid) is get your pink on! 😊
Wear as much pink or as little pink as you like to help raise awareness of this fantastic charity.
As a practice, getting your colleagues and patients involved is such a fun thing to do.
To help raise funds, you could have a raffle or bake sale or arrange an event – anything that involves working alongside your own local community to contribute and help other communities.
The money raised from Smile in Pink will help communities in the developing world by funding emergency dental training programmes for rural healthcare workers, giving them the essential skills needed to provide safe dental care to people who otherwise would not have access to this important healthcare.
Since Bridge2Aid was founded in 2002 by Ian and Andie Wilson, the registered charity has worked with local and national governments alongside other agencies in Rwanda and Tanzania. It has made dental treatment available to more than four million people – an outstanding achievement.
