Our patient Nick Petro visited Ethiopia last month.  His story is touching and uplifting.  Dr. Greg Friedman & Mod Squad Dental recognize his efforts & applaud him.  Below if a little info about his trip……

Nick visited Ethiopia for a Missions Trip through the wonderful www.unforgottenfaces.com organization. He could not wait to spend quality time with the orphans and re-learn the simplest, yet most profound, gift of love through the eyes of the children.  He had many supporters for this trip and was overwhelmed by the kindness.

From Nick:

Upon returning I realized I learned a lot from the generous and loving people there and WILL follow through with the (3) projects I said I would take on for school there for (160) children:

1: Get toothbrushes/toothpaste- DONE! Thank you to Mod Squad Dental for the generous donation!
2: Raise $2,000+ to supply (1) uniform per child. (Not one child had a change of clothes the entire time we were there)
3: Raise another $2,000 for the 3rd meal plan. Currently the children leave hungry and come back in the morning even hungrier with NO dinner at home.
*IF you are moved to make a TAX-DEDUCTIBLE donation, please click here http://unforgottenfaces.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=100&Itemid=673 and do so today. Thank you on behalf of the children of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
