Clyde Munro dental team run helps the poorest children in Nairobi

At the beginning of October, 30 members of the Clyde Munro Dental Group in Scotland ran the Bank of Scotland Glasgow 10k.  Along with their investment partners Synova Capital together they raised almost £3000.

The money was given to the charity the Global Child Dental Fund who will coordinate a project to fissure seal and provide urgent dental care for children in Kibera, Nairobi Kenya.  The project will be overseen by the Kenyan Paediatric Dental Association

Professor Arthur Kemoli, President of the Kenyan Paediatric Dental Association, said:

“Kibera is the largest slum in Nairobi and the largest urban slum in Africa.  Most Kibera children live in extreme poverty, their parents earning less than $1.00 per day. Unemployment rates are high and HIV continues to increase.   There is little in terms of government clinics and no hospitals in Kibera and this money raised by Clyde Munro dental group and Synovia Capital will help us provide both urgent treatment and prevention for these children.  Thank you so much for all your kindness”

Professor Raman Bedi, a paediatric dentist and Chairman of Clyde Munro Dental Group will take the money raised to Nairobi and join the Kenyan dentists who will be providing free dental treatment for Kibera children”
