newsletter july 2018
TEECH visits and provides aid to a dentist called Stan in Nisporeni, Moldova (Stan is the gentleman in the top left hand picture). For over 4 years the relationship has built up and to help with his work further TEECH linked another charity, DentAid, with Stan as they are in a better position to support and provide aid for this area of work. DentAid have been providing toothpaste and toothbrushes along with more specialist dental equipment for the last 2 years. A recent trip by DentAid volunteers to Moldova, provided time to visit children in the region, teaching them the importance of tooth care – some of the pictures can be seen here and above. TEECH will be delivering further dental aid to the region in August.
psychiatric hospital - Balti, moldova
If you read through our newsletter in June, you will have seen that TEECH are supporting a project at the Psychiatric hospital in Balti, Moldova’s second largest city. The hospital requires toilets, sinks, showers for the patients and staff and work is now well underway. As the work progresses we will continue to update the photo gallery, therefore please take a look here. The first stage is the patients toilets/urinals/sinks which has meant a total clear out of one room, a wall has been taken down and another one erected to make the room much bigger. Given the heat they are experiencing in Moldova (like here in the UK) this is hard work! For those volunteering on this summers’ TEECH project there should be an opportunity for some volunteers to visit the hospital and lend a hand with the work there. If you would like to contribute to the funding of the project then all donations can be made using the MyDonate link at the bottom of this page.
