We are delighted and excited to have been donated a mobile dental clinic for use in Malawi by NHS Highland. This is a lorry with a self-sufficient fully functioning dental clinic with a small waiting room. The lorry will have to be transported to Malawi and this fundraiser is to help cover those costs along with the costs of buying dental materials to stock the van. Our aim is to use the van to help support the local workforce and provide preventive and simple restorative procedures for rural populations who have no access to dental care. Our mechanics from Smileawi Spanners plan to carry out some repairs and servicing on the vehicle which will of course incur some costs. In order to reduce the environmental impact we want to fit large solar panels and a water filtration system. We also plan to buy some instruments and equipment for the mobile clinic.
