We are planning a health care campaign in Sonrise Children’s Home newly built school block which will take place in December. We will distribute reading glasses to children and adults and teach them the ins and outs of tooth brushing. Most of the population in the area doesn’t have access to basic health care. Peace’s Hope collected more than 1,000 tooth pastes and 700 tooth brushes so that the newly learnt skills can be practiced at home. Those items will be handed out to the training participants upon completion. Thanks a lot for all the kind contributions to this campaign.
Just few weeks ago we learnt in a very useful session how to actually brush your teeth correctly. This session has been led by Dr. Karin Bode-Haack who successfully reminded all of us of this basic skill. There is indeed quite a big difference how to brush your tooth depending on if you are a child, teenager or adult. Using two dolls (Felix and Micki) we can create a highly interesting and also entertaining lesson for the kids. We had a blast. We really hope that we can teach our Ugandan kids this skill in the same funny and competent way as Dr. Karin Bode-Haack did. Thank you so much for this wonderful session.
