GoalThe goal of this project is to provide dental equipment, medications and vitamins to care for over 800 people in Cochabamba, Bolivia.
SummaryThis White Cross project seeks to raise $10,00 per year to purchase and provide dental and medical supplies for the House of Hope mobile clinics.
DescriptionIn Bolivia, only children under 5 years old get health coverage. Almost 85% of dental cavities in adults and children go untreated. Access to healthcare is very difficult and indigenous communities are at high risk for completely preventable diseases such as diarrhea and chronic malnutrition. The House of Hope in Chochabamba partners with local doctors and dentists to bring mobile clinics to serve vulnerable populations in the city and surrounding provinces. Your support will provide equipment and supplies for two mobile dental clinics and one medical clinic in Cochabamba, Bolivia. These clinics will provide needed medical and dental care on a regular basis. Through education and screening, this project will prevent diseases and provide local churches with outreach opportunities for ministry to their local communities. The House of Hope mobile dental clinic will provide care and prevention to 800 people resulting in improved oral health. The mobile medical clinic will provide annual care to 500 people resulting in improved overall health in vulnerable populations. These clinics give the House of Hope the chance to build relationships with Bolivian doctors and dentists thru monthly meetings that build community among the volunteers and offer evangelism and discipleship opportunities.
