We train rural health workers to provide emergency dental care


Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I've always wanted to run the London Marathon but have always had an excuse not to do it work,children,husband...well no more excuses the time has come and I'm ready to take the challenge! Matthew has agreed to look after the boys while I'm training so spare a thought for his sanity too.

Three quarters of the world's population has no access to the most simple dental pain relief, leaving billions to face a daily battle with pain in the toughest of life circumstances.

Bridge2Aid is working to address this terrifying problem. Their vision is to provide emergency dental training for Health Workers in all remote communities in the developing world, therefore creating sustainable access to safe Emergency Dental Care to millions of people currently suffering from dental pain with no hope of treatment.

Bridge2Aid empowers Health Workers who are already established and well respected members of rural communities, providing them with the skills, experience and equipment to help those in need. Training is carried out by volunteer dentists and dental nurses who spend approximately two weeks in East Africa with Bridge2Aid participating in a Dental Volunteer Programme.

Since 2002, 2.6 million people in East Africa have been given access to safe Emergency Dental Care because of Bridge2Aid’s training programmes. They need your support to help  train and equip more Health Workers in developing countries. By eliminating dental pain and suffering, we improve quality of life in a growing number of rural communities.


So come on...think of me on these dark nights running the country roads and donate a little or a lot to this worthy cause x
