Partner: North Africa
Establish the first-ever dental clinic in the remote village of Faya-Largeau, Chad to share the hope ] of Christ and improve the dental health of future generations.
Faya-Largeau has been struggling with access to essential health services for decades. Save for the nomadic communities that pass through on the way through the Sahara Desert, this village is often forgotten by the outside world and unable to get the care they need.
Our Mission ONE partner in North Africa has a long history of developing clinics in remote villages that allows them to build relationships and share the hope of Jesus Christ. After many prayerful years, they have decided to build a new dental clinic to meet the needs of the local community.
Our Mission ONE Partner in North Africa has already secured a plot of land from the local government to build the first dental clinic in the city. Using donated chairs and dental equipment, they will begin to see clients on a regular basis, including providing basic check-ups, cleanings, and extractions.
You can be a part of bringing essential dental services to Faya-Largeau which teaches communities how to take ownership of their own dental care.
Residents like Latifah, a woman in her late sixties, are finally receiving regular dental cleanings to keep their teeth and gums healthy. After years of suffering toothaches, Latifah went to the clinic and got her infected tooth extracted to relieve the pain and prevent the infection from spreading throughout her body. For the first time, she and her neighbors are brushing their teeth, flossing, and reducing their sugar intake on a daily basis.
In the long term, these dental clinics will expand to offer other health services including ophthalmology. Spiritually, the dental clinic will provide opportunities to share the gospel and even sow the seeds for planting a new church.
Reach 200 people with basic dental check-ups and teeth cleanings by December 2021
Perform 50 tooth extractions monthly for people in need
By the end of 2021, plant a new church in the community
