FDI World Dental ๐Ÿชฅ Federation Sponsors Dental ๐Ÿฆท Camp for Students ๐Ÿง’๐Ÿป at HOPE's Zia Colony Formal School ๐Ÿซ

Dear HOPE Friends,


FDI World Dental ๐Ÿชฅ Federation Sponsors Dental ๐Ÿฆท Camp for Students ๐Ÿง’๐Ÿป at HOPE's Zia Colony Formal School ๐Ÿซ


A Couple of Days Prior to the Advent of Ramadan โ˜ช๏ธ this Year, Preschool through Third Grade Students ๐Ÿง’๐Ÿป at HOPE's Zia Colony Formal School ๐Ÿซ Participated in a Dental Camp ๐Ÿฆท Organized by the Pakistan Association of Dental Students ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฐ, under the leadership of the FDI World Dental Federation ๐ŸŒŽ.


FDI is the leading voice of the dental profession ๐Ÿฆท and represents over one million dentists globally ๐ŸŒŽ. The Pakistan Association of Dental Students is a subset of FDI's footprint in Pakistan ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฐ.


Oftentimes for both children and adults living below the poverty level โค๏ธโ€๐Ÿฉน, the importance of dental hygiene ๐Ÿฆท is completely overshadowed by the lack ๐Ÿšซ of basic needs such as shelter ๐Ÿš๏ธ and food ๐Ÿ”. However, poor oral health can open the door to an array of serious health ๐Ÿฉบ issues. This is why HOPE was so appreciative and welcoming when PADS, a subset of FDI approached us to have a day dedicated to teaching young students at Zia Colony School ๐Ÿซ about the basics of dental health ๐Ÿฆท.


PADS representatives arrived to Zia Colony School ๐Ÿซ early in the morning ๐ŸŒ… and set up stations to teach small groups of students ๐Ÿง’๐Ÿป from preschool through third grade. Among the topics covered were how to correctly brush teeth ๐Ÿชฅ and the importance of oral health ๐Ÿฆท. Students listened with great enthusiasm and were also given toothpaste to take home ๐Ÿš๏ธ.


We wish to extend our gratitude ๐Ÿ’ to PADS and FDI for including HOPE's Zia Colony School ๐Ÿซ in this wonderful outreach initiative which was a valuable โœจ learning lesson for our children ๐Ÿง’๐Ÿป. We are so appreciative of any opportunities in which our children can build a tool kit ๐Ÿงฐ for themselves and amass a repertoire to break free from the tenacious cycle of poverty โค๏ธโ€๐Ÿฉน.


The HOPE USA ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฐ, HOPE UK ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฐ, and HOPE Pakistan ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฐ Teams
