Cambodia Appeal - Student Contribution



5 December 2011

Westmead Hospital is disposing of 40 dental chairs and have offered the chairs for use overseas. Two university Dental Faculties in Cambodia University of Health Sciences & the International University have asked for the chairs - for the training of their Dental undergraduates. Some chairs will be placed in orphanages and in prisons where weekly clinics are held for students to provide a service for this very needy part of the Cambodian community, while training.

The costs to pick up the dental chairs, store them, and then pack them into a container for the trip to Phnom Penh is $19,600.

Last Saturday evening the BDent 4 students raised $300 at their Graduation Ball towards this cause.
