OVER 836,210 ROHINGYA REFUGEES SETTLED IN COX'S BAZAR HAVE NO ACCESS TO DENTAL CARE
An estimated 65% of Rohingya refugees have some form of oral health disease. The Mobile Dental Clinic will serve the marginalized and under-serviced population of refugees in Cox's Bazar, providing free dental services. With so much reward for visiting the sick, how about helping cure them? Through providing for the basic needs of people, we build healthy smiles and hopeful hearts.
UOSSM-CANADA AND ICNA RELIEF WILL OPERATE A MOBILE DENTAL CLINIC, SERVING MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN ACROSS REFUGEE CAMPS. THE CLINIC IS UNIQUE FOR THE FOLLOWING REASONS:
- It is the first dental clinic in the Rohingya camps.
- The clinic will prescribe and dispense medicines on the spot for the common ailments and provide referrals to hospitals for extreme cases.
- Free dental services will be provided by dentists and dental assistants.
- The clinic will treat an estimated 1,500 beneficiaries per month and 18,000 beneficiaries over 12 months.
