In August 2023, I will be travelling to Tanzania in East Africa to volunteer for two weeks for those in need of dental care and providing oral health education for children within schools.

After qualifying in the UK in July 2023 (fingers crossed), I want to use my skills and knowledge to help those less fortunate - Tanzania has limited access to health care, and dental treatment and I feel that I could make a big impact by providing dental care and oral health education.

My plan is to contact a lot of dental companies to try and get some resources to take over with me, such as toothbrushes, toothpaste mouthwash and so on, to provide to the people of Tanzania, as well as carrying our dental treatments and help relieve any pain that they may be in due to lack of dental treatment.

I will be doing lots of fund raising over the next 12 months to try and raise as much as possible to help me get to Tanzania, my goal of £1,800 will help cover my volunteering fees and any additional funds raised over this amount will be donated to a local charity in Tanzania.

Any donation big or small would be greatly appreciated, as this really is a once in a lifetime opportunity to do something amazing before starting my career back in the UK.

Thanks - Katie x
