When Mohamed came to see me he didn't need to tell me that he had toothache.....just look at his poor swollen face!

He had to have a course of antibiotics for an abcess before he was able to have the offending tooth removed (which he very kindly gave to me!)

A lot of the kids complain of  toothache and during the last three months I was there I arranged for 5 of them to have teeth removed (with their parents or guardians permission of course). It costs between £10 and £20 depending on how difficult a job it is, but this is an amount that most families just can't afford so the children usually have to put up with the pain for much longer than they should have to.
