Uganda, Africa Mission Trip
Crossroads sends a dental team to Kampala, Uganda to put on a dental clinic at the Mildmay clinic, the biggest HIV care and treatment provider in central Uganda. We travel in January and serve children afflicted with HIV/Aids.
The team will work under the leadership of Dr. Paul Musherure to endure a safe and productive environment for the dental clinic.
In Uganda, there is still a stigma for those who have HIV/Aids and it is difficult to get dental care once you are diagnosed. This dental clinic focuses on children who would never have the opportunity to ever see a dentist.
This team is looking for dentists and their hygienists, skilled electric/mechanical trouble shooters, or people who are amazing with children.
You must interview for this trip as it does require a special skill set. If you have any of the above listed skills, we’d love to meet with you!
