Reading time 1:10 min

FBM Foundation took proactive steps to promote oral hygiene awareness in Rizal, Philippines from February 17 to 18, helping May-iba Burol Teresa and Sitio Tawid Tawid residents through a series of initiatives that spread hygiene kits, useful instructions and free dental services throughout the community.

To raise awareness about dental hygiene, for the second year in a row, 20 Champion volunteers facilitated insightful sessions and distributed oral health care kits. This year’s initiative was divided into two actions – the first one in May-iba Burol Teresa and the second one in Sitio Tawid Tawid.

The first initiative, held on February 17 in May-iba Burol Teresa, saw the distribution of 250 oral health care kits to residents. On February 18, free dental services, including cleanings and basic extractions, were provided to locals in Sitio Tawid Tawid, Antipolo. An additional 250 oral health care kits were distributed to the community.

Pepe Costa, FBM Foundation’s Representative, and Lulu Barreras, Community Service Project Coordinator, led the team of volunteers to ensure the success of both programs. The initiatives were made possible through a partnership with the League of Community Unity & Support (LOCUS), an organization committed to holistic development and sustainable initiatives.

“Happy smile, happy life” was the motto for last year’s dental health awareness initiatives held in Subic. In this activity, the organization worked with the Foundation of our Lady of Peace Mission Inc. to distribute donations and laughter to the Aeta Resettlement Area children, the foundation said in a statement.

"By distributing oral health care kits and sponsoring free dental services, FBM Foundation not only addresses immediate dental needs but also empowers individuals to take charge of their oral health in the long run," the organization said in a statement.
