Free Dental Examination and Education for the Children of Yayasan Kami Satu
BY GLOBAL ASSISTANCE & HEALTHCARE MEDIA RELATIONS
As part of their long term commitment to Project "A Better Health for our Children", Global Assistance & Healthcare (GAH) continues its provision of healthcare needs to the children of Yayasan Kami Satu.
Yayasan Kami Satu orphanage, located in Citeureup is home to 33 abandoned children between the ages of 3-15. First established in 2003, founders Mr John and Mrs Olga Waleleng envisioned a long term plan to provide care and support for children in need.
On Wednesday 14 September, free dental screening and dental education were provided to 33 children and 11 staff members of Yayasan Kami Satu. A team of 3 dentists and 3 assistants provided dental care which included basic examination, scaling, tooth filling and extractions. The children also received goodie bags with dental and hygiene items during the dental education which covered the essentials of oral care. Other fun activities such as games and drawing competitions were organized. Winners were provided with various prizes, much to the delight of the children. This event was overseen by GAH General Manager, Mr Alain Durand.
"Today, it is an important day for Global Assistance and Healthcare team", stated Mr Alain Durand, who further commented that "our CSR initiative aims at providing sustainable support to the wonderful community of Yayasan Kami Satu, in mobilizing our medical capabilities and expertise. We are proud to participate, with humility and determination to the improvement of children’s health and well-being. We believe that it is our mission to prepare the future and to put the next generation in the best possible conditions. Good oral hygiene is important to the overall well-being of the children and we are very happy to be part of this oral health education program".
Since the first official healthcare relationship in June 2016 with Yayasan Kami Satu, GAH has already provided health examinations, follow-up appointments, medicine and medicine administration education. This has benefitted all the children at Yayasan Kami Satu.
"Having this program enables us as parents to pay attention to the development and health of the children's dental care", echoed Mrs Olga, who brimmed as she recalled the wonderful support given by GAH.
Mr John enthused, "the children are happy with the dental health event today". He further reinforced that "when it comes the time to brush their teeth, the children will brush their teeth diligently without us reminding them. I think the dental education that was provided to the children really helped in showing the kids the importance of dental care".
Some of the young children at Yayasan Kami Satu told staff that they liked the drawing competitions and they enjoyed watching the dentists do their checkups. They are pleased that the GAH staff who attended to them are friendly and patient.
GAH's provision of free dental assessments and dental education reinforces its commitment on a continuation of its healthcare relationship with the children of Yayasan Kami Satu. With more scheduled healthcare events which are planned for the rest of the year, GAH's dedication and partnership with Yayasan Kami Satu continues to prove the success of project "A Better Health for our Children".
