Guatemala: Photos from the Helping Hands Oral Hygiene Project
Posted on: Monday, August 24, 2009
Thanks to MADRE members' support, Executive Director Vivian Stromberg was able to deliver toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss, mouthwash and learning kits to children in the Barcenas community during her recent worktrip to Guatemala.
The Women Workers' Committee, MADRE's partner in Barcenas, was able to conduct a health fair about oral hygiene techniques using the materials sent by Helping Hands. Each participant went home with a bag of toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss, some sugar free candy, and toy teeth for children.
