    Having expanded to Kenya in 2013, Global Dental is excited to announce its partnership with the Kikuyu Hospital Dental Clinic in Karen, built in 2006. This fully equipped, eight chair dental clinic is perched in the hills outside of Nairobi. Surrounded by picturesque acacia trees, the area offers respite from the congestion and hubbub of the capital city.

    Throughout the clinic, volunteers live in a guesthouse on the grounds of the hospital compound. A daily walk from the guesthouse to the dental clinic provides opportunity to take in the surrounding community, while passing local vendors and hundreds of uniform-clad children walking to school. Working alongside their Kenyan colleagues, volunteers serve hundreds of children from nearby schools. Evenings and time off are spent exploring the rich African culture and the beautiful environs of Karen.

    Following each five-day clinic, volunteers have the option of participating in a three-night, four-day Africa safari in the renowned Masai Mara National Park – a stirring landscape backdrop to an incredible abundance of wildlife.

    Having arrived in Kathmandu on Friday, April 24th to treat children in the beloved site of GDR’s first clinic in 2001, the volunteer team of 14 were out in the open and unhurt when the area was struck by a massive, 7.9 magnitude earthquake on Saturday. Just as fortunately, although the building sustained structural damage, the children at the Sri Mangal Dvip (SMD) boarding school – GDR’s base of operations in Nepal – were all safe and accounted for as well.

    Over the past several days, volunteers have spent time with the indomitable students at the SMD school who are still living in tents. They have also been able to retrieve and organize medical supplies from the GDR clinic site which have been donated to the relief effort.

    Our thoughts go out to this intrepid volunteer team as they make their way back home and remain with our dear friends in Nepal as they rebuild their community over the weeks and months to come.

    Greetings from the MV Ammari at Queen’s Wharf in beautiful Newcastle,
    home to one of YWAM Australia's centres and thriving youth programs
    YWAM-Youth Street. We are deeply grateful for the hospitality and
    generousity we have received here from our host city. We have had over
    5000 people tour the ship in the last three weeks, seen over $60,000
    raised for the Overcoming The Impossible campaign, and received many,
    many, generous donations of much needed equipment and supplies to take to
    PNG. We were very pleased to announce at the breakfast fundraiser on
    board last week, that we reached our fundraising goal to raise funds for
    two operating tables and stools for our new clinic. By the time you
    receive this letter we will have wrapped up our time in Newcastle and
    arrived in Sydney.



    Meanwhile, the MV Pacific Link sailed home to Townsville on Saturday
    completing the 2014 outreach season in Papua New Guinea. When I look back
    on the life of the Pacific Link, I am overwhelmed by what that little
    ship has been able to achieve. When we received the ship in 2010, we
    underestimated the impact the ship would have in the nation of Papua New
    Guinea or the impact the nation of Papua New Guinea would have on us!
    I’m pleased to report that we’ve helped deliver 249,952 health and
    training services with the vessel over the past five years.



    We have so many fond memories from the 2014 outreach season in PNG. My
    heart goes out to little ones like Janet who you will have the
    opportunity to meet in the newsletter below; a ten year old girl with HIV
    is an inspiration to us to dream big! And help Overcome Impossible.



    The MV Ammari will help to increase and expand our work. We will be able
    to bring hope, meet more needs, and partner to overcome the impossible!



    With the east coast tour continuing, we’ll make our final stop in
    Sydney, berthed there for seven weeks. We are open for tours on weekends
    from 1-4pm at White Bay Cruise Ship Terminal; raising awareness,
    recruiting volunteers, and raising funds. We would appreciate it if you
    could spread the word to your Sydney friends.



    One of our goals in Sydney is to finalise the procurement of all
    remaining much needed medical equipment for the medical out-fit of the MV
    Ammari. Visit our website, www.ywamships.org.au

    This past month has been full of history-making moments between YWAM
    Medical Ships - Australia (YWAM MSA) and Papua New Guinea.



    After signing a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Oro Province
    and the Milne Bay Province of PNG earlier this year, YWAM MSA’s current
    vessel, the MV Pacific Link, was able to make history as it sailed into
    both provinces for the first time.

    Last year we were at a gathering in Papua New Guinea where we had the
    opportunity to share about the ship. At the time we were still
    fundraising for it. We described its size, its capabilities, and its
    catamaran design. As we continued to share, we began to see eyes light up
    all over the room.



    “What’s going on?” we thought.



    A woman came forward and began to share their story. They described our
    ship as a double hulled canoe; a big aluminium 'lagatoi' - which you’ll
    see in the above photo is a pretty accurate description! She went on to
    explain the history of the lagatoi in her province; many years ago
    Central Province had a bad drought leaving no food and water in the
    entire province. The men in the village would travel to the Gulf Province
    in large lagatois to trade wares for food and water for their families.
    They would be gone for many days, and the women and children would line
    up on the hill looking out for the lagatois to return. When they got a
    glimpse of the lagatois on the horizon, it was a time of great
    celebration; the men had returned! There was food and water! The lagatois
    represented hope in a time of great despair.



    This month we sent off our lagatoi full of volunteers and medical
    supplies for its maiden voyage to PNG. We have been thinking about the
    hope that it too represents, but the lagatoi would be nothing without the
    people on it, the support behind it, and the faith God gives us.



    We want to express our sincere gratitude for helping to make our first
    voyage possible. We look ahead with great joy and expectation as our
    lagatoi makes its way over the horizon to the people that need it most;
    answering years of praying and hoping.



    We look forward to sharing the stories with you!



    God bless,

    while earning Fellowship in the International Dental Implant Association
    Dr. Goran Topalo, a dentist at Plum Grove Dental in Palatine, recently returned from a trip to the Dominican Republic, where he served as a team member for dental missionary. Dr. Topalo joined an international team of highly trained implant surgeons in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, to offer their services to Dominican people who otherwise could not afford them. The team was led by a chief dental implant instructor, professor Dr. Arun Garg, a world renowned maxillofacial surgeon and one of the top implantologists in the world. Dr. Topalo and colleagues performed numerous surgical dental procedures, with main emphasis on dental implants, bone grafting and extractions. Each dentist from a group of about 20 was able to provide more than 36 hours of surgery over three days. The group as a whole provided free care in an excess of 1 million dollars during their mission.

    "The experience was most gratifying and truly amazing. For a dentist, nothing is more rewarding than helping people in need to restore the functionality of their bite, lessening inherent pain and providing them with the ability to smile, with confidence. It was a tremendous honor and privilege to work with and learn from such a distinguished group of experts in our field. As a result, I was able to employ my surgical skills that I've spent extensive time training for."

    At the University Clinic, where treatment took place, patients formed long lines to be seen, some waiting for many hours. Dr. Topalo was very moved and deeply touched by the appreciation the Dominican people showed to the missionaries. "Patients were lined up each morning in front of the clinic and when the doctors arrived they were greeted by clapping hands and loud cheers. I felt like a professional athlete coming off a field, victorious. I have never witnesses anything like that and it was those moments that reinforced the significance of our mission and how much our free care meant to these wonderful, deserving people. It was touching and humbling at the same time. I hope to participate in many more volunteering trips with the group moving forward."

    Dr. Topalo was awarded a Fellowship in the International Dental Implant Association (IDIA) for his efforts.

    India

    Corporate have Social Responsibility (CSR) targets to help improve community living. In India, though the corporates understand their accountability towards the society and are willing to take initiatives for the betterment, it becomes difficult for them to reach the grassroot level.

    Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has acquired new dimensions in the recent years. Today, companies are proactively taking up this good hearted investment and giving a social value to all their business endeavors.

    In India, though corporate have a strong will to dedicate their resources for a social cause, they find it difficult to reach the right people considering the demography and diverse social problems of the country.

    We thus join hands with the corporates to help them advance their welfare initiatives to the needy families and save on their time and human resources. We help the corporates meet their Corporate Social Responsibility targets through NGOs with expertise in the respective field.

    The very foundation of TCF was laid on the realization of a group of young corporate professionals that it was their corporate social responsibility to give back to the society.

    Achieve your Business Social Responsibility Goals
    Support some of our programs and social service initiatives.
    Adopt a child, family, school, or a village to meet you social responsibility.
    Corporates can sponsor a vocation training program through our ‘Sponsor a Skill’ drive.
    Buy greeting cards from our partner NGOs.

    With Corporate Social Responsibility in India having acquired a new dimension in the recent years, more and more companies are increasingly realizing that it is a good hearted investment, which brings manifold benefits to the company. Thus, all CSR activities are being designed in alignment with the corporate business strategies.

    Once you register with us for your CSR activities, you can come online at any time even after years and get the collated record of all the work done by you and all the people who have benefited from your support.

    Where There Is No Dentist
    by Murray Dickson
    First edition 1983. Fifteenth updated printing, July 2012. 238 pages, paperback, illustrated
    English ed. ISBN: 978-0-942364-05-7

    Community health workers, educators and individuals from around the world use Where There Is No Dentist to help people care for their teeth and gums. This book's broad focus makes it an invaluable resource.

    The author uses straightforward language and careful instructions to explain how to: examine patients; diagnose common dental problems; make and use dental equipment; use local anesthetics; place fillings; and remove teeth. There is also a special chapter on oral health and HIV/AIDS, which provides the dental worker with a detailed, well-illustrated discussion of the special problems faced by people living with HIV/AIDS, and appropriate treatment.

    The 2012 edition of Where There Is No Dentist features a new section on how to do Atraumatic Restorative Treatment (ART), a permanent way to fill cavities without the use of a dental drill that was first pioneered in Tanzania in the mid-80s and is now used by health workers and dental workers in many parts of the world. We have also updated the Information on other training materials, resources, and where to get dental supplies. This book is an important companion to the 2011 printing of Where There Is No Doctor.

    What people have to say about Where There Is No Dentist:

    "By giving a well-balanced mixture of illustrations and simple, succinct text in layman's terms, the book provides valuable, hands-on advice for the most important oral health issues: oral health promotion in the community and basic oral care in low-resource settings." - Habib Benzian, World Dental Federation (FDI)

    "As a nurse educator, I can say that the Where There Is No Dentist text by the Hesperian Foundation, has been an excellent health resource text for us. Both its content, its diagrams and the educational level it was written for, have proven to be extremely useful. The content has been very practical in teaching lay Brazilians about oral hygiene and health care, as well as for identifying when oral and dental health problems exist and when and how to refer people to a dentist. It is rare that excellent health texts like this are written for the lay individuals." -Janette Ryan, Health Director, Project AmaZon Mission [PAZ], Brazil

    Ende der Einsätze in Ocotal

    Deutlich schwerer gefallen als die nur logische Schwerpunktverlagerung unserer Arbeit auf den Philippinen von Manila nach Mindoro ist uns folgende Entscheidung: Ab Mitte des Jahres werden wir keine Médicos Alemanes mehr nach Ocotal entsenden. Dank des Teams vor Ort, dank der vielen Einsätze von Humanmedizinern und Zahnärzten und dank der guten Koordination von Katrin Hennings und Reinhart Bein gemeinsam mit dem Zahnarzt Walter Schweitzer wurde im Norden von Nicaragua seit 2004 vielen Menschen geholfen, die kaum Zugang zu medizinischer Hilfe gehabt hätten, wären wir nicht vor Ort gewesen. Und auch wenn die Situation der Armen dort nicht so dramatisch wie in Asien und Afrika ist, gibt es doch echte Not. Andererseits haben wir uns aber für die Projekte auf den Philippinen, in Sierra Leone, Indien, Kenia und Bangladesch im Rahmen der Umsetzung unserer Strategie „Helfen und Schulen, damit die Hilfe bleibt“ für die nächsten Jahre sehr viel vorgenommen. Um diese Ziele zu erreichen, müssen wir unsere Kräfte und unsere finanziellen Mittel bündeln, und so haben wir uns schweren Herzens zu diesem Schritt entschieden. Und welche Hilfe bleibt in Ocotal? Auf das, was zahnmedizinisch erreicht wurde, können wir aufbauen. Die Zahneinheit in Ocotal wird unter Leitung eines nicaraguënsischen Zahnarztes auch in Zukunft unseren Patienten zur Verfügung stehen. Im Januar wird Harald Kischlat vor Ort sein, um gemeinsam mit Katrin und dem Team zu überlegen, welchen Input wir im humanmedizinischen Bereich noch geben können, damit unsere Patienten auch über die direkte Anwesenheit der German Doctors hinaus Anlaufstellen haben.

    Aus Freude am Helfen

    Seinen ersten Einsatz leistete der Zahnarzt Dr. Carsten Wenzel 2010 in Ocotal in Nicaragua. In den 90er Jahren bereiste er das Land als Tourist – mit German Doctors e.V. versorgt er notleidende Menschen mit Zahnproblemen.

    „Ich weiß nicht, warum ich gerade hier in Deutschland mit einem intakten sozialen Netz und seinen individuellen Möglichkeiten aufgewachsen bin. Aber ich fühle mich genau deshalb verpflichtet, in einem anderen Land, wo es solche Voraussetzungen und Möglichkeiten nicht gibt, zu helfen. Die Dankbarkeit der Menschen wiegt die Anstrengungen eines solchen Einsatzes mehr als auf. Und ich gehe am Ende des Einsatzes mit dem Gefühl, etwas wirklich Sinnvolles gemacht zu haben. Ist man einmal damit „infiziert“ kenne ich keinen, der es bei einem einzigen Einsatz belassen hat.“

    Ocotal in Nicaragua

    Nicaragua gehört zu den ärmsten Ländern der Welt. Nach Einschätzung des Human Development Index leben 42,5 % der Bevölkerung in Armut, in den ländlichen Regionen steigt diese Anteil auf bis zu 70 %. Nicaragua ist damit nach Haiti das zweitärmste Land Lateinamerikas. Die Gründe der schlechten Wirtschaftslage sind vielfältig: Neben geschichtlichen Faktoren, einseitiger Wirtschaftsstruktur und jahrzehntelanger Oligarchiewirtschaft spielen auch häufige Naturkatastrophen wie Erdbeben, Wirbelstürme und das Wetterphänomen El Niño eine gewichtige Rolle.

    Die Arbeit der German Doctors konzentriert sich seit einigen Jahren auf Bergdörfer um Ocotal, einer entlegenen Region im Norden Nicaraguas. Zunächst lag der Schwerpunkt unserer Arbeit in Managua, doch nachdem sich die generelle medizinische Versorgungslage der Menschen dort verbessert hatte, beschlossen die German Doctors 2009, sich mit ihrer Hilfe auf die verarmten Bauern im Norden des Landes zu konzentrieren
