Dentaid has launched a fundraising appeal to help Rosette. Rosette is a single mother from Rubaya in Uganda who works tirelessly on a small patch of land to provide for her six children. She has no other income.
For the last four years, Rosette has been suffering with non-malignant cystic ameloblastoma, a condition which causes her great pain. We first met her 2 years ago when a Dentaid team travelled to Rubaya, a region near the border with Rwanda. Sadly, there was little our dental team could do in a remote outreach clinic to relieve the pressure in her jaw. In October2020, one of our dental associates returned to Rubaya to run another dental clinic and found that Rosette’s condition had worsened. She is now in severe pain, the swelling has grown and there’s no way she can afford the treatment she needs.
Dentaid launched an appeal to raise £2000 to pay for treatment that will change Rosette’s life. She’ll be able to smile, eat and live without constant pain. Dentaid is working closely with the dentists who will provide her care.
Untreated dental pain causes misery and hardship but thanks to our supporters’ help we can help Rosette have a brighter, pain-free future.
