In August 2016, our dental team visited Jose Maria Arguedas Elementary School in Chorrillos, Peru and provided over $140,000 in free, comprehensive dental services with the incredible help of the local dental school, Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC). Together with UPC, we saw over 350 patients. Children from the school can receive follow-up preventive dental treatment from dental students at UPC, making our annual outreach program sustainable.
Next year, we will to return to Jose Maria Arguedas and provide more free dental care. We need your support to continue providing these much-needed dental services!
