Happy teeth!

Who doesn't love to brush and floss their teeth? No one. But, some people don't have toothbrushes, and even if they do, they don't know how to properly care for their little pearly whites. One of our volunteers, Megan Richards, went above and beyond and asked her dad to send out some hygiene kits with second wave volunteers so that we could teach some hygiene lessons. We know that the paste will run out, and that the brushes won't last forever, but hopefully the knowledge we left behind will make a difference. We decided to take some of the kits out to Rose & Pauls and leave the others with the Andrew Lovell Academy soccer team. At Rose & Paul's the kids were delighted to share the lesson with us and then literally overjoyed when we distributed the little dental kits. After the lesson, we played "pata, pata, encoco"  (duck duck goose) and then taught the kids the hokey pokey. Another fabulous day in Buwala with some of the coolest kids we know.

It is good to educate the illiterate people, all these basic things which will help them lead a hygienic life style.
Good images shared. Nice sharing.
