Oral Hygiene for kids in comuna 13
We executed this project in September of 2019. It was developed in comuna 13 where, believe it or not, some children do not have access to dental care. The main idea was that 210 children were given products, such as toothbrushes and floss, that would help their oral hygiene. We were going to have 2 hygienists who would teach them to use these tools; unfortunately, they did not show up, however we carried out the delivery of the kits.
All this was created by a resident of comuna 13, Gladis, (the lady in yellow in the photos). Gladis did not want any recognition for what she considers all of us should do, however we believe she deserves any recognition possible. She is part of a kind of local government and is very committed to the social development of the area.
The same day the Colombian national police prepared an event in which they gave toys to the children. The Colombian national police supported us with the logistics of the event and we appreciate this gesture.
The Insiders Foundation's team supported this event using our ability to connect people who want to help with people who need help.
We thank all those who were part of this initiative— thanks to your help, we made it possible.
Helping will always be a joy to the soul.
