How we choose locations for an open wide foundation clinic

  • Community Need

    We work only in communities that have great need, and ask for our help.

  • Local Support

    Government support and willingness to invest in project (capital & staff). Agrees to sustain the clinic.

  • Built for the Future

  • GIVE A WEEK AND $1,000

    100% of your donation goes to provide dental supplies and general upkeep of the clinic during your week of service. A typical week will include four days of clinical work and two days of exploring the region, forming relationships and creating memories that will last a lifetime. You will return with a camera full of photos and a heart full of meaning.
