Dentistry For Every Village Foundation recently received donated dental supplies and materials from the ICD Global Visionary Funds and Henry Schein Cares.
The donations are for the second mission at Pambujan, Northern Samar, Philippines on April 28-29, 2016 to allow D4EVF to attend to the hundreds of underserved people from the different villages that make up the municipality of Pambujan that were not seen during the first mission in the area last February 2016.
The ICD Global Visionary Fund (GVF) is a charitable fund created by the ICD for the purpose of collecting and distributing monies in support of initiatives in dental education and humanitarian oral health care. The Fund allows the ICD to respond to requests from ICD Fellows and other volunteers for financial assistance with their charitable works around the world, especially those of the ICD Regions
The ICDGVF following strict guidelines determines which Foundations and charitable dental care providers are eligible to receive support for their projects.
D4EVF was determined to be one of those worthy of support and thus was recommended to Henry Schein Cares Foundation (HSCF) to receive supplies and materials.
The HSCF is the charitable arm of Henry Schein Dental Supply Company. They work to increase the delivery of health care to underserved populations through community health and wellness initiatives, product donations and outreach programs.
The HSCF donated materials and supplies worth $1996.06
