Peru: Fundación EDUVIDA
The Fundación EDUVIDA from Peru effectively provides children, adolescents and parents in deprived areas of Lima with a sustainable education. One important aspect is dental health.
An essential part of the organisation's work is raising children's awareness of dental hygiene and health - which is taken for granted and carried out by parents in developed countries. It was noticed here that in addition to prophylaxis, there is a huge need for dental treatment, which many people cannot afford financially.
MedTechTrade AG has supplied a complete treatment room with dentist's chair, instruments, dental X-ray machine and image developer to the Fundación EDUVIDA -funded by the LOTEX Stiftung and Thoolen Foundation. Medical assistants have also been trained to use these devices.
