Dental hygiene project for Ratu Varani Memorial Primary School in Kadavu Koro village serves 180 children. Matava aims to improve the oral health of the Fijian village communities by promoting oral health to prevent, appropriately treat, monitor and evaluate oral diseases. We have the goal of supplying every school child at Ratu Varani Memorial School with a new toothbrush every term/semester.
Children’s Toothbrushes and Toothpaste
Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
• Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
• The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.
Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
