Meet Patrick. He lives at the Kabwata orphanage in Lusaka, Zambia. He has been a part of the Kabwata family since birth. He is 13 years old and a happy healthy teen. His teeth have been an issue for him and his confidence. The director of the Kabwata orphanage shared this with Renee Afman, our Alkare Foundation director to Kabwata orphanage, and she was able to get the ball rolling. While sitting in the dentist chair herself and sharing Patrick’s story with her Dental Hygenist she got the idea to share his story to a broader set of local dentists/orthodontists. Through their generous support and donations Patrick is now receiving treatment with a set of braces which will correct his bite and straighten his teeth and make a lasting difference in his life!
