30-year-old Nuru could not afford dental treatment for many years. Untreated, chronic inflammation combined with caries lead to her teeth ending up looking like black stumps. Persistent pain also led to an insufficient food intake.


Thanks to your support we were able to provide Nuru with dental treatment in Mombasa. From September to November 2013 the tooth stumps were removed, the inflammation was combated and finally a dental prosthesis was fitted.

At the end of the treatment, Nuru happily says that she feels like a new person and the donors from Germany have given her a new life Nuru's outward appearance and the resulting increased self-confidence today also provide her better chances on the job market.
