Charities - Bridge2Aid
We're working with Bridge2Aid, a dental charity, to help train rural-based Health Workers in developing countries - giving them the skills, equipment and resources they need to provide emergency dental care.
Most of us have suffered from toothache at some point in our lives. It can be debilitating, constant, and excruciating. At home we can give ourselves some respite by simply reaching for the painkillers and making an appointment with our dentist. But for many people, that’s just not possible; 75% of the world's population do not have access to a dentist.
Bridge2Aid is to change this terrifying statistic. Their goal is clear; provide emergency dentistry and pain relief to those who need it most, and make a lasting change through training.
So far, Bridge2Aid has trained over 310 Health Workers creating safe, sustainable access to treatment for over 3 million people where previously there was none.
But there is still a long way to go.
That's why Oasis has chosen Bridge2Aid as its charity partner this year. And, through supporting Bridge2Aid, Oasis is proud to be contributing to the World Health Organisation's oral health strategy, focussing on the world's poorest communities in an ethical and sustainable way.
