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 ranging from 1 to 60 years old, and more than half of our patients were 8 years old and younger. Children from Jose Maria Arguedas can receive follow-up dental treatment from dental students at UPC, making our annual outreach program sustainable.
Next Year, We will to return to Jose Maria Arguedas school and provide more free dental care. We need your support to continue providing these much-needed dental services!
