Once again the Kindness in Action NGO from Canada joined us in Peru, this time in the northern town of Chulucanas. More than 1000 dental treatments were provided in record-setting heat. The team of 23 volunteers consisted of 8 dentists, accompanied by dental assistants and helpers. Local Lima dentist Nickolas Koenig participated as well.
People received extractions, fillings and cleanings, as well as almost non-stop education on dental hygiene.
The mayor of Chulucanas presented each one of the group with a certificate of appreciation and a gift of a local ceramic, for which Chulucanas is famous. A tour was given to see the local artisans at their craft.
