FDI World Dental 🪥 Federation Sponsors Dental 🦷 Camp for Students 🧒🏻 at HOPE's Zia Colony Formal School 🏫

Dear HOPE Friends,


FDI World Dental 🪥 Federation Sponsors Dental 🦷 Camp for Students 🧒🏻 at HOPE's Zia Colony Formal School 🏫


A Couple of Days Prior to the Advent of Ramadan ☪️ this Year, Preschool through Third Grade Students 🧒🏻 at HOPE's Zia Colony Formal School 🏫 Participated in a Dental Camp 🦷 Organized by the Pakistan Association of Dental Students 🇵🇰, under the leadership of the FDI World Dental Federation 🌎.


FDI is the leading voice of the dental profession 🦷 and represents over one million dentists globally 🌎. The Pakistan Association of Dental Students is a subset of FDI's footprint in Pakistan 🇵🇰.


Oftentimes for both children and adults living below the poverty level ❤️‍🩹, the importance of dental hygiene 🦷 is completely overshadowed by the lack 🚫 of basic needs such as shelter 🏚️ and food 🍔. However, poor oral health can open the door to an array of serious health 🩺 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 🏫 about the basics of dental health 🦷.


PADS representatives arrived to Zia Colony School 🏫 early in the morning 🌅 and set up stations to teach small groups of students 🧒🏻 from preschool through third grade. Among the topics covered were how to correctly brush teeth 🪥 and the importance of oral health 🦷. Students listened with great enthusiasm and were also given toothpaste to take home 🏚️.


We wish to extend our gratitude 💝 to PADS and FDI for including HOPE's Zia Colony School 🏫 in this wonderful outreach initiative which was a valuable ✨ learning lesson for our children 🧒🏻. We are so appreciative of any opportunities in which our children can build a tool kit 🧰 for themselves and amass a repertoire to break free from the tenacious cycle of poverty ❤️‍🩹.


The HOPE UK 🇬🇧 🇵🇰, HOPE USA 🇺🇸 🇵🇰, and HOPE Pakistan 🇵🇰 Teams
