South Africa 2012 (December)

In December 2012 the Dental Wellness Trust visited the Afrika Tikkun Centre of Excellence at the Nelson Mandela Peace Park in Delft, Cape Town. Delft is a township on the outskirts of Cape Town, situated next to Khayelitsha. We donated 1000 toothbrushes to the children, and Dr Linda Greenwall presented an oral health education workshop to 250 children.

This initiative was organised in partnership with Afrika Tikkun, an international NGO that provides education, health and social services to children, youth and their families in South African townships. Through this partnership we aim to empower communities through oral health education. ¬†Read our volunteer Saul Konviser’s account of the trip here.
