This is Samos refugee camp. Around 1000 people live here after fleeing war, persecution, poverty and violence. No dental treatment has been available and people are suffering terrible toothache. Many refugees are on liquid diets and can’t eat because their dental pain is so severe. International dental charity Dentaid is determined to help.
Over the coming months Dentaid is sending teams of volunteer dental professionals to provide emergency dental care in the camps in Samos and neighbouring Lesvos.
Dentaid needs your help to provide dental equipment, medicines and other materials for the clinics.
Make a difference with dentistry.
