Hands with Hope

PRESENTED ON OCT 01, 2015
IN BATAVIA @ VOL 1

“There are stories after stories of young children who are already missing permanent teeth because their moms had pulled them because the excruciating pain was too much to bear. ”

Restless in her day-to-day profession of dental hygienist, Annie Nardone found a way to create more meaningful work for herself while still using her expertise in dentistry. In PechaKucha Night Batavia’s 1st volume, she discusses how she created Hands with Hope, a not-for-profit foundation, to deliver training, dental treatment, equipment, and supplies to impoverished communities in Central America. Currently, Hands with Hope maintains and supports three fully functioning dental clinics in Honduras and Guatemala, which are run and operated by locally trained individuals eager to serve their communities.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Wednesday, May 18th, 2016.
