Our international team of dentists, assistants and helpers will travel to Madagascar in October 2023 for Menschenfreude e.V. to provide dental care to hundreds of patients in several villages. For the mission, we created fundraisers to collect donations of money and materials. For example, as part of the official Dental Health Day (25.9.) and other occasions.
Menschenfreude e.V. has been active for schools in Ethiopia since 2021. In November 2022, I had the opportunity to travel with them to the country before leaving for Madagascar. This is my travel report. I am Joost, 21 years old, from the Netherlands.
On the initiative of Menschenfreude board member Jürgen Perteck, we were in Madagascar in November 2022 as part of an aid campaign. We, that is dentist Dr. Kathrin Zizmann, helper Pia Eberlein, as well as our companion Joost Versluis. Jürgen Perteck became aware of the catastrophic dental conditions while building a drinking water well in Antanimarina Village during a previous trip.
