I will be in Nepal in April with 3 teams of volunteers. Thanks to the generosity of the following sponsors further equipment and supplies the clinics at Kopan and Chialsa will be well equipped.
Heartfelt thanks to these people and all the volunteers who are prepared to give their valuable vacation time and expertise for such a worthwhile cause.
The International College of Dentists have approved a grant of $1500 in addition to the $3500 last year for new equipment.
City Dental continued their wonderful 6 year support with materials.
My fellow graduates (Adelaide (1973) offered $560 for a new portable patient chair.
Dr Chris Hodge donated a Cattoni portable cart and an amazing selection of surgical instruments and forceps.
Dr Zenaidy Castro has also been very generous with materials and equipment which will be very useful.
Lilian Chan and Lyndal De Gruchy kindly collected materials and instruments that were needed following their visit in September.
Unfortunately Chris who was coming to Nepal next had a bike accident only a week ago which has not only prevented him from coming to Nepal but also a 4 week lay off from his practice. Undaunted Chris and his partner Lesley plan to come on the next trip in 2019.
