Dental Finals - then out to Vietnam!
by Rosemary Longhurst
Six Cardiff University dental students completed their final exams in June, then, within a few days, set out to take part in a dental project in Vietnam. This was arranged through the Degenhardt Foundation, set up in 2000 to improve life for children in Vietnam by organizing emergency paediatric dental treatment, mobility training for the blind, boat building projects and setting up libraries and computer centers in some of the poorest parts of the country.
The first edition of The Degenhardt Newsletter is available in a screen readable pdf format by clicking: Newsletter.
