My experience in the Cox's Bazar is another reminder to me how massively privileged we are in the UK. We must not forget the people who need the help most. By taking a week out of my routine, I have been able to work in a team providing life changing aid to help children and adults to have pain free life and potentially save lives.
This project can have a substantial impact on the future oral health of these children, giving hope that they will not have to have decayed teeth extracted in the future. Oral health is a human right, and no child in the world should have to suffer from dental pain, and have all their deciduous teeth extracted due to decay.
We all have a skill, and I feel fortunate to have been able to use my skill to change someone’s life through working with RCF.
