Solomon Islands

The Atoifi Seventh-day Adventist Hospital, in a remote area of the Solomon Islands, is desperately short of dental facilities. They have trained dentists, but no clinics to treat patients.

To help out, Dr Genna Levitch, an Australian dentist, is helping to build a much-needed dental clinic, connected to the hospital. As currently, without a place to treat patients, too many locals live in pain every day.

To make a life-changing difference, we are asking for donations to fund the building of this crucial dental clinic, so the people can access the dental care they need.

Stories

Sani lives in the small village of Wyfolonga near Atoifi Seventh-day Adventist Hospital at Uru Harbour and she had a bad toothache that had been troubling her for 18 months. She couldn’t eat properly and some nights she couldn’t sleep. It started as a small hole in her tooth, but it just got bigger and bigger until parts of the tooth broke off and then it really started to hurt. All that remained were some stumps left in her gum that were sharp and infected. Then one day she heard that a retired dentist had come from Australia and would be at Atoifi Hospital for two days. She paddled her canoe across the harbour, tied up at the wharf and walked up the hill to the outpatients clinic. Was he still there, would he be able to see her? Dr Levitch was in Atoifi to plan a new dental clinic so there can be a permanent dentist at the hospital. He saw Sani before his plane left and took out the rotted stumps. Sani was relieved. She could live a normal life again! If only Dr Levitch can build his clinic, this would not happen again. Help Dr Levitch to build a much-needed dental clinic by donating today!
