We are so grateful to @ChaiMommas and @UnitySME for their fundraiser over the holiday season, which resulted in us being able to distribute dental hygiene kits to over 700 children in rural India! Each kit contained a toothbrush, toothpaste, tongue cleaner, toothbrush tracker, a dental care booklet and a face mask. We were also able to provide dental care awareness sessions to small groups of children during the distribution.

One of the most important harvest days in India, the festival of Uttarayan marks the day when winter begins to turn into summer, signaling to farmers that the harvest season is approaching. In Gujarat, kites fill the skies as whole families gather on the rooftops to compete against their neighbors. We wish you a high-flying harvest and abundant season ahead!
