This money contributes towards the salaries of local Timorese workers, dental materials and consumables, the purchase of new dental equipment, and the maintenance of used dental equipment, our vehicle and the fixed clinic in Maubara.
This year has been even pricier due to the need for a new vehicle ($25000). Now Team 2 reports that our 10 year old dental compressor, with a price tag of $3800, is on its last legs, having just survived its last repair.
SO THIS YEAR the program needs $43800 in total.
AT LAST COUNT THIS MEANS WE ARE $23620 SHORT OF OUR GOAL!
