COLT | Cambodia

Thank you to the children of Cambodia for showing me love in it’s simplest form. I love you all!

Colt Testimonial 1Our organization COLT – Cambodian Organization for Living and Temporary – care was one of the first organizations in Cambodia to work with the KIDS team. That was a great pleasure and over the years it has shown us how important the work of KIDS is!

Because of the early intervention in dental care and the education that came along with it, the children of COLT have the privilege of having very healthy oral health. After the first three years we noticed that the dental problems became less and less until a point that they just needed a yearly check up. With that their normal health also improved! We know many children and adults don’t have this privilege in Cambodia due to the fact of poor education and poverty.
Over the years the KIDS team has grown so did the number of our patients, many other NGO’s came to visit the KIDS / COLT dental day in one of the poorest areas of Phnom Penh. Many of them saw a dentist for the very first time in their life and also they now have the benefit of healthy teeth.
What makes the KIDS team visit extra special for our organization is that the children of COLT, who were once the first patients of the KIDS team are now joining the KIDS team as dental translate volunteers and they help with the education lessons about dental health. We are very proud that our children can be part of this and that they educate and comfort other children in their country. We hope to be part of the KIDS dental weeks for many years to come!!
