It was the first time anything other than an extraction has been an option for these people
Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) November 18, 2011
More than 500 people in three remote villages in Nepal recently received health and dental care through the efforts of several organizations, including the Center for Global Change, and several other charities.
Fifteen volunteers, including two dentists and one doctor, embarked on a 16-day excursion that spanned three villages, Thula Syabru, Thambuchet and Tatopani in the Himalayas. As part of the “med camps,” much-needed dental work was done with the aid of two customized, Avtec portable dental machines.
“This is the first time any of these villages had ever seen fillings done,” explained Aaron Cuba, the managing director of the Center for Global Change. “It was the first time anything other than an extraction has been an option for these people.”
Business leader and philanthropist, Yuri Vanetik, sponsored the med camp expedition. “Without the generosity of Yuri Vanetik, we wouldn’t have been able to help the people who are in dire need of medical care. This is especially important in the current globally distressed economy, where the contributions of individuals and organizations such as Yuri Vanetik, The Mountain Fund and Rescue Humanity become even more vital,” explains Cuha.
