One of the boys in the Casa Girasoles really needed a dentist. He was scared.
The pandemic has made it very challenging to get in to see a dentist in Perú. However, things opened up last week and we were able to get him seen, not once, but THREE times! His teeth, well - they were bad.
Not anymore. We've got him all fixed up and we have a prevention plan in place.
Its funny, because so many little things have been pushed aside this past year. No, dental hygiene is not a little thing. However, taking care of ourselves - well, that seems like something that got pushed aside. Not anymore.
Thanks to all of the incredibly generous supporters of Health bridges - we have the resources to help formerly abandonded boys, children and families in our Ines Project, and former Casa Girasoles young men have access to so much. Your generosity makes it possible for us to move beyond the traditional model of charity . . . your generosity allows us to build life enhancing and life forming services and supports.
I am also so thankful that you trust us with your valuable resources. I am so thankful for the support, generosity and blessings we receive everyday.
