You will enable CHAT to :
Purchase dental supplies (costs approximately $1,500 each trip) and dental equipment.
Each trip we also give a monetary gift to local volunteer helpers who join a CHAT trip and pay for their work/travel insurance.
Donate to poorly funded orphanages and other institutions we visit that are in need of help.
