Gaza: iYouth Organises Dental Health Campaign
Health issues were always the most important issues to concentrate in our community, because with a healthy environment we would have much more productivity and success. One of those important health issues is the dental health.
iYouth members from Adam Center decided to make students more aware about how to take care of their teeth, and provide them with some strategies to prevent tooth decay. Also telling them some reliable facts and scientific information about the oral health, and finally distributing tooth paste and tooth brush to each student.
On 30th April 2012, the youth headed into Al Falah School eastern Gaza, targeting the elementary stage students. Carrying with them the tooth pastes and brushes, the youth made the awareness sessions with students, interacting with them and telling them how to brush their teeth in the right way, and then they distributed the tooth pastes and brushes on them. The Students were very happy learning new information, and getting some good advices on how to take care of their teeth.
Finally, the students, the teachers, and the school principal were very thankful for iYouth program on the information and the gifts, asking the youth to continue their good efforts to the community. Overall of 500 students (aged from 6 to 12) were reached, and about 30 youth members were engaged in the action.
