It has been a momentous week at Nepal House!
A generous dental team from the Canada donated their time and resources to provide dental care to the staff, students, and family members of the Nepal House Girls School. Dr. Paul Comparelli, Diane Horita and volunteers staged Dental Camps that touched the lives of a large number of people - if you have a Facebook account and have "NepalHouseKaski" as a connection, you can view the latest photos.
This is an opportunity that many of the girls attending Nepal House Girls School would have never gotten without the support of Nepal House and I am extremely grateful that the support was present to provide this incredible experience to the students.
I mean think about it for a sec, what would we do without our biannual visits to the dentist? Can you even imagine going years without ever being told how to take care of--or even that you should take care of your teeth? I will be the first to admit I couldn't. Dental decay and periodontal diseases are rampant in developing nations.
In fact, there are no Childrens' hospitals in Pokhara, Nepal where Nepal House is located. This dental camp marks Nepal House getting one step closer to the dream of establishing proper childrens facilities in Nepal.
Thank you to all the Nepal House supporters who have been able to make programs such as this one a reality!!
