Cant Volunteer? Heres How You Can Support Us

Posted on November 5, 2019.

At Global Dental Relief (GDR), it is our mission to provide free dental care to impoverished children around the world. The children we treat come to our clinic from government schools, and remote villages. Our dedicated teams of volunteers work diligently to provide life-changing treatment to children in Nepal, India, Cambodia, Guatemala and Kenya.

Though volunteering may seem like the only way to support GDR’s mission, there are many ways to contribute to improving the health of a child.

Many people have a desire to make a difference but are unable to leave their jobs and families behind. If YOU are moved by GDR’s work, but are unable to join us overseas, read below to hear how you can get involved.

Become a Legacy Partner

Donate a lasting gift with a charitable request via your will or living trust. It can be a monetary donation or securities gift through your estate. For details, contact Kim Troggio, GDR Director, via EMAIL.

Donate Supplies

Every donation makes our mission possible! You can find a list of accepted donations by clicking HERE. We accept most restorative supplies and materials to use in our clinics overseas. With each in-kind donation, we are able to provide more children care worldwide! Supplies can be mailed directly to our office.
