A BRUSH AND TOOTHPASTE TO MAKE CHILDREN HAPPY PROJECT (2015 – 2016)

In cooperation with Turkish Disaster and Emergency Management Presidency (AFAD), Fatih Municipality, and Idealist Dentists Foundation in this project, dental screenings of 6-12 year-old children living in 20 Syrian refugee camps are made and “mouth and dental care and hygiene” trainings are given to raise awareness on mouth and dental health.

In the scope of the project, about 60.000 children in 6-12 years of age living in 25 camps managed by AFAD are informed about mouth hygiene, fluorinated, and distributed toothbrushes and toothpastes. (The total amount of toothbrushes and toothpastes that are distributed together with reserves is 80.000.)
