In July 2017, Chances for Children Foundation approached us, after searching for clinics and medical centers in Kampala. Bhandari Dental Care was happy to assist the Foundation with free dental checkup for the orphanage children. The camp was done in conjunction with Indian Association Uganda. Chances for Children Foundation hosts over 50 orphaned children saved from the streets, and provide them with shelter, education, food and dancing classes.
Although we have some sponsors and try to do everything we can to raise some extra money, we don’t have enough budget for health checks, hygienic necessities or malaria kits. Quite a lot of kids suffer from malaria, bad teeth condition or head aches, due to thir past and trauma’s. We are always looking for creative ways to get support. In 2 weeks there will be a mobile dentist clinic at the center to do a check up on their teeth. The UN will give a counseling session concerning sexuality and HIV.
I am trying to contact health centers that might be willing to help us in any way. Maybe you can help us with a free check up on some of the kids, maybe with providing some brochures on hygiene, a workshop, some materials like malaria kits or tips or contacts. Everything is a big gain for us and would help us a lot.
I would love to hear from you to hear if you can and will help us. It would mean the world to us and the children to have a check or some extra focus on health care.
