Thame dentist aims to raise £4500 for dental care in Malawi

A Thame based dentist is aiming to raise £4500 to provide dental care for a minimum of 1000 people when he visits Malawi in April 2019.

Zak Khatana and his dental nurse Sam Miller who both work at Thame Dental Practice will be spending two weeks in Malawi, Africa treating the poor in rural northern villages.

Dental care is something we take for granted in the UK, however in places like Malawi there is minimal access. There is a desperate need for dental care in Malawi. The country has fewer than 40 registered dentists for a population of 19 million people and access to dental services is particularly difficult for people living in remote rural communities, with people dying from preventable dental infections causing sepsis.

In Easter 2019 Zak and Sam will be part of a small team of volunteers who will set up and install a temporary dental clinic in the village of Bulala as well as working with other surrounding villages. Many of the patients will require emergency care and extractions but there will also be oral health programmes being ran.

The team are aiming to see a minimum of 1000 people during their stay and so are asking for your help. Dental supplies are expensive so they are fundraising to help them provide as much care as possible to those in need. All donations will be used entirely for this project, however big or small the amount.

They are hoping to raise £4500 for this worthy cause, if you’d like to donate please visit the link below.
