We have spent a day examining 117 children from 3yrs old to17. 21 needed treatment. Sadly 28 children had had their healthy canine teeth unnecessarily removed by the " witch doctor" before they had grown into the mouth. This usually means " digging " the small partially formed tooth out of the gum with whatever is available.
We will be travelling close to the source of the Nile and camping on an island. From there we will be able to do some more community clinics.
Today was our first clinic day. We travelled with our bus full of equipment, 10 of us, and 4 Ugandan dentists, to a children's prison, where street kids are taken to if they try to steal food I. Kampala. Some of the children are ferrel, and don't behave well so getting them to comply with treatment was a hit and miss affair. We abandoned those who fought us. One boy had his injection but refused treatment afterwards. We saw 250 children, but only a few needed actual treatment. We have tons and tons of supplies and I was able to give 2 full suitcases to the clinic in Maya and Nzara, South Sudan.
A wonderful Belgian woman called Natalie opened this orphanage 2 years ago. She rescues children from the prison, and basically loves them back to health. She has 92 children there now, and 30 staff, all funded by donations. These boys loved the crayons and colouring books we gave. Each child has a sad story, like the boy who was not fed by his mum for a whole year, and the baby found in the road only 2 hours old...but all are well cared for now. The police recognise the good work she does and now bring an abandoned child to her rather than the prison.
Alison travelled to Uganda at the end of this week as part of a 7 strong surgical and dental team.
Everyone arrived safely, with one member of the team travelling from Australia.
