This year seems to be flying already…can you believe February’s over? Anyway, try and cast your minds back to last year when one of our team members partook in something nothing short of amazing. Last summer, Pano took part in a trip to Thessaloniki in Greece to offer support and aid to those who truly needed it the most.
The trip, which was organised by Dentaid in association with the Health-Point Foundation, was hugely successful. Inspired by Pano and the other dentists experience, team KDS have signed up to join other dentists on the next aid trip in March. Just like Pano, we’ll be heading to Thessanloniki, the second largest city in Greece and working in the refugee camps alongside the Red Cross and Health-Point Foundation workers. As most of you know, we’re on a mission to raise the standards of oral health in our community. However having heard about how desperately in need of help refugees around the world are, we have extended our mission to look outside our community and offer people in different regions of the world support too. We’ve decided to help out in two ways and would really appreciate your help:
As we mentioned, we’re heading to Thessanloniki on the 17th March. Not only do these refugees need dental care, they need food and clothes too. We want to take as many clothes and non-perishable foods with us as possible. We’ve been building up our own donations for a while now but we would still appreciate all the support you can offer. If you’ve got any tins of food or perhaps some clothes you were looking to donate to a charity shop, we ask that you consider donating to our trip instead. We can guarantee that all your donations will go directly to those who need it the most; we can also promise that they will be very gladly received.
Secondly, we will be donating funds to those wonderful people providing care to refugees in other regions. This money will be used to pay for materials and medicines that will allow experienced dentists to provide the necessary dental treatments and aid, whilst also providing simple things we take for granted such as a toothbrush and toothpaste. Donations of any amount will be gratefully received.
All donations of food and clothing can be delivered to K Dental Studios, 116 Great Portland Street until the 15th March. If you would like to make a cash donation, you can do so here: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/K-DENTAL-STUDIOS
