Supporting Bridge2Aid as a Gold Unity Partner
Most of us have suffered from toothache at some point in our lives. It can be debilitating, constant and excruciating. It is something we would immediately look to address by reaching for pain relief or booking an urgent visit to the dentist. But for many people this is not possible; 75% of the world’s population does not have access to a dentist.
Dental charity Bridge2Aid is working to change this, and we are delighted to support the charity each year as a Gold Unity Partner. Through training, the dental charity creates rural-based health workers in developing nations. We are currently sponsoring the training of a health worker in East Africa each year, which will enable hundreds of people to have access to emergency dental treatment in their community, where previously there was none.
Since 2004, Bridge2Aid has trained hundreds of health workers in emergency dental care, providing safe and sustainable access to over 3 million people in East Africa alone, and we are delighted to be part of this journey.
