Volunteering with K.I.D.S. International has not only allowed me to care for children, but it has also provided a way to experience other cultures, mentor dental students, and build wonderful friendships around the globe. Having previously done dental humanitarian missions with the United States Navy, where we had a lot of equipment, manpower and supplies, I realize that just as much, if not more, can be accomplished through the efficiency of K.I.D.S. This organization is a well-oiled machine – the amount of children that are treated in these impoverished communities is incredible! And these children will touch your heart. Their enthusiasm for life in the face of extreme poverty is humbling and has really put things into perspective for me. I am so fortunate, and it only makes sense to share my good fortune with others. I could not have asked for better experiences.
