For many years I have wanted to be a part of TUG’s dental missions, to use my experience as a dentist to make a difference.
I probably expected even more primitive conditions at the clinic than I experienced. Another positive surprise was the goodwill and skills, which greatly helped the process along.
I was especially impressed by the obvious cheerfulness among the Rwandese, despite poverty and general hardship.
Now I know what it means to be on a dental mission and how the work is organised, I wouldn’t mind going again, and to once more make such a big difference.
