Dental Partnership with Mercy Trucks

We are excited to share with you an amazing new project! Several months ago, the orphanage director in Andreevo Ivanovko approached us about getting dental treatment for the kids. We searched for awhile and God opened the door to a partnership with Mercy Trucks in Ukraine. This truck full of dental equipment and even a full dental room set up in the truck goes around the country to provide dental care to those in need. We praised God for this open door.

The drove down from Kiev and stayed at the orphanage for several days. We sent nine of our team members from Odessa to the orphanage to assist. The team members were quite alarmed when they realized they were the assistants! It was so great for them to work with the dentists, encourage the children, and to help them get through the not so fun experience of dental work. For many, it was the first time that a dentist had looked in their mouth. Teeth were cleaned, cavities were filled, and their were lessons about how to care for your teeth through brushing and flossing.

If you are interested in this project, let us know. We want the Mercy Truck to drive around to all orphanages!
