Warm greetings everyone!

My name is Mubiru Sulaiman, a Dental student at Medicare college, in Uganda.

Together with my team, We African Smilers Association-ASA a nonprofit based in Uganda. We are a team Young dentists and dental students.

Providing free dental services to the underserved served communities in Uganda

We are a team of young dentists and dental students who are working so hard to extend free dental services to the underserved served communities now Uganda currently but looking at serving the whole of African in the near future.

From a few dental outreaches we have carried out as a team we realized there are so many regions in Uganda where they totally have no single dental clinic and the nearest they can find is 12 miles away from where they have to foot to get there of which a few can afford even the cheapest service (extraction). We landed on a number of individuals claiming to have had tooth pain due to decay for over 4 years and they could find any help around apart from taking daily pain killers.

We want to extend our services

We want to extend free dental services to the underserved/unprivileged communities in Uganda. These communities include Rural areas, Ghettos, islands on lake Victoria, and some poor families around cities.

From our early camps, we realize there are a number of people suffering from tooth pains especially in the rural and these have no access to dental services. The services are out of their reach due to the long distances to reach thereafter all the access to transport is also a rag of war. And the few who have dental clinics in their regions just can't afford it.

It fascinates meetings patient in the camp and they tell you they have had the tooth pain for over 2 years and only surviving on pain killers and herbs.

So it came to our concern and bellow are the services we wanna deliver

1. Oral health education

2. Extractions

3. Examination

4. Scaling and polishing

5. Cementing

6. Dentures (to a few)

7. Referring

8. Giving out toothbrushes and paste

Usage of the collected funds

To do all this we realized our team can only do so much, so we would need a push off at least $900.0 USD to facilitate transport, food, and transport while in camp. Some of the members vow to provide the medicaments and tools to be used and willing to offer free services.

We would be grateful if we get this money before 1st/12/202.
