A Smile for Lebanon

Friday, November 18, 2022

Our club has been supporting a dental clinic in a public school in Saida, Lebanon since November 2020. This has been a hugely successful project implemented by our partner, Rotary Club Tripoli Cosmopolis.

We have decided to build on this success to expand the initiative and to provide dental health to kids not only in Saida, but in Tripoli as well. To do so, we will use a mobile clinic - Imagine a dentist that drives from school to school in a van.

To raise the required USD 129 000, we have opened a new Global Grant Application - GG2342056 for 'A smile for Lebanon: Children's dental health'.

We have already received the following pledges and donations:
RC Genève International USD 4’000

  • RC Genève International USD 4’000
  • RC Tripoli Cosmopolis USD 1’000
  • RC Aarau USD 10’000
  • District Designated Funds 1980 USD 10'000
  • District Designated Funds 1990 USD 30’000
  • District Designated Funds 2000 USD 10'000
  • District Designated Funds 2452 USD 3’000
  • Potential matching funds of the World Fund USD 42’200

We have therefore already secured 2/3 of the overall amount needed. This is very encouraging. We are appealing to all other Rotary and Rotaract Clubs as well as Districts to support our project!
