Hugh need for toothbrushes & toothpaste

There are increasing numbers of patients presenting to TroppoDoc clinics in Burkina Faso, Bolivia, Indonesia and Vanuatu with oral health problems.
Dr Derek Allen performs tooth extractions and provides oral hygiene education about the importance of brushing teeth. 

Troppodoc gives out toothbrushes and toothpaste where it can (along with oral hygiene education), but there is such a huge need for toothbrushes and toothpaste. 

If you are thinking of volunteering, or would like to help in any way, collecting new toothbrushes and tubes of toothpaste - or sponsoring money to purchase these items would be much appreciated.
If sponsoring money, please mark donation: "toothbrushes/toothpaste". Thank you.
