For those of you who are new, TWW has a medical/dental fund through the Salvation Army for victims of human trafficking who have been identified by Project Fight of the Salvation Army. Here are my previous posts on the matter. (Weirdness happening-the links are active to these posts but they look black. Click on them anyway.)
Last week, I received a call from Project Fight about another victim who has lost all of their teeth due to a combination of malnutrition and physical abuse. My son-in-law’s practice has offered, once again, to forgo any charges for the work needed to measure ands fit the dentures. We will only have to pay the dental lab which makes the dentures. We figure the charges will be in the $500-600 range.
Due to your kind donations we have more than enough money to proceed. Once again, I will provide updates and pictures (If the victim agrees.)
Also, through a Christian medical and dental group with which my husband and I volunteer, we were able to get a plastic surgeon to help a victim whose face was horribly knifed and disfigured by his trafficker. This was done for no charge.
We are now working to get another victim’s injuries cared for by an orthopedic group. I will update you on the success of that situation as well.
I cannot thank all of you enough. Your loving donations are making a difference.
