Dental Brigade

We have a group of college students from Western Kentucky University going to Quito, Ecuador on June 1-10. They want to partner with Charity Anywhere on doing a dental brigade on June 1 and 2. They have a dentist going and we will provide 4 other ecuadorian dentists. They need to rent our portable dental equipment and we would also furnish the dental supplies. They plan on servicing 200 people during those 2 days.

They do not have the budget to cover the costs to do the 2 day brigade, $3400. This figures out to be $17 per patient. Can you help with one or ten or 50 patients? If you can, go to the website and do the “donate now” button. Earmark your donation as “Dental Brigade”.

Mobile Medical and Dental Clinic

The city of Otavalo has given Charity Anywhere a mobile medical and dental motorhome to serve poor villages. The LDS Church has donated one opthamalogy chair and examination equipment for this medical unit. We have local doctors that will travel with this motorhome to use this new equipment. We always welcome other eye doctors to join our work.

CAF Display

We have had lots of opportunities to talk to people about Charity Anywhere Foundation but one of the exciting ways is to attend and display at the Dental Conventions and the college international fairs. We are able to show some of the pictures of expeditions and teach them about what the foundation does. A little over a week ago we were able to display at the Utah Dental Convention. It was so fun to meet people and see their desire to serve kindled by our display. God blessed us with 4 important connections. 1) A professor from the University of Utah said she wanted to meet together to design and program of international experience for her International Health students. She would develop the curriculum and we would handle the out of country expeditions. 2) A gentleman talked to Gordon about a sizable donation. 3) We received some offers of equipment that could really be used 4) We were informed about an international eye program that we might be able to work with that is supported by Sears Optical, Lenscrafter etc.

Dr. and Mrs. Zambrano were here as well as an orthodontist and a pediatrician from Ecuador. We worked hard on our display and I thought it looked pretty good.

Clinic in Otavalo Ecuador

We have been given a new clinic by the city of Otavalo in Ecuador but we need $40,000 to fund the clinic for a year. We need donations to pay for the rent, utilities, supplies, doctors and dentists. If we are unable to sustain the clinic, it will revert back to the government and we may miss out on a wonderful opportunity to serve the needy families in that area of Ecuador.

News From Ecuador

Dr. Zambrano has just announced that Charity Anywhere in Ecuador is partnering with the Navy. Dr. Zambrano has personal contacts with an Admiral and that is responsible for the Navy to have practice exercises. They want our medical and dental teams and volunteers to serve Galapagos. This means volunteers would board a Navy ship, go to one of the islands then fly by plane or helicopter or both to other islands. All of this would be under the Ecuadorian Navy flag. The two Galapagos trips on the calendar are with the Navy.
