Turkish Representative to Kenya Ahmet Cemil Miroğlu and Lamu Governor Fahim Yasin Twaha visited the dental health camp, witnessing first and the hundreds who were treated.        


Miroglu and Twaha conveyed their satisfaction with the services being provided by the Turkish dentists at the Oral camp, which was organized by the Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TIKA) and the Women's Education and Culture Foundation (HEKVA).        


TIKA's Nairobi Program Coordinator Emre Yuksek stated that “Here on Lamu and Faza islands, five female dentists participated in our dental health camp, leaving everyone with a smile.”


Yuksek added that for those who could not reach the camp, TIKA brought the dentists to them.        


“Kenyan colleagues went to the villages every day, traveling long distances in boats, and performed dental scans and treatments,” he said, referring to dentists under TIKA's health camp.        


He also added “In a week, 2,500 people underwent dental screening, and 750 people's teeth were treated.  Medications were provided for many patients.”
