Operation Smile :-)

“Tooth cleaning campaign” is a program aimed at addressing minor tooth problems such as plaques and tooth decay and encouraging the maintaining of healthy tooth among children in village communities where there are no dentists.

By this way we teach a brother to teach a brother the best way to keep their teeth healthy by using a recognized hand book we received from The Hesperian’ s back in 2016.

Although we did not received any financial support on this program but we received in-kind support from friends and supporters whom we may like to acknowledge: Elisabetta Frate & Husband, Federica Luison and Roberta Mangano.

So far so good, two village communities being attended….a total number of children and adults educated numbered up to 450 and still counting.

To enable us to sustain this program and extend our services to more deprived communities we appeal to donors and friends to come to the aid of the program!

Health Awareness Creation: first aid tutorials for deprived communities

EN – Besease is a rural village community within the Kwahu West Municipality in Ghana, with about 500 inhabitants. The community has no source of power, health facilities, accessible road and only one borehole serves as unique source of water for the community.There are no other social amenities.

When somebody is severely sick, the person must be carried at ones back to walk  approximately 4 km to meet the main road and enable them to get car to the nearby hospital which is located 15 km away to access healthcare.

The community inhabitants are mainly peasant farmers. Thanks to the medical donation from LIONS CLUB Pieve di Soligo (TV) and the partnership with Tundra Stamperia, we have given education on health and other first aid tips to the Besease community.

IT – Besease è una comunità rurale all’interno del distretto occidentale in Ghana, con circa 500 abitanti . La comunità non ha alcuna fonte di energia, strutture sanitarie, strada accessibile e possiede una pompa che serve come unica fonte d’acqua per l’intero villaggio. Non ci sono altri servizi sociali .

Quando qualcuno è gravemente malato, la persona deve essere caricata sulle spalle fino ad incontrare la strada principale e consentire loro di raggiungere l’ospedale più vicino, che si trova a 15 km di distanza e accedere all’assistenza sanitaria.

Gli abitanti della comunità sono agricoltori principalmente contadini. Grazie alla donazione medico da LIONS CLUB Pieve di Soligo ( TV) e la partnership con Tundra Stamperia, abbiamo dato educazione alla salute e altri consigli sul primo soccorso alla comunità Besease .
