Miles of Smiles!
Monticello, NY—On July 21, PRASAD Children’s Dental Health Program (PRASAD CDHP) inaugurated a new mobile dental clinic at the Sullivan County Government Center in Monticello, NY!
More than 75 well-wishers attended, including U.S. Congressman Maurice Hinchey’s (D-Hurley) District Representative, Chris White, NY State Senator John Bonacic (R/C/I Mt. Hope) and Sullivan County legislators.
We are most grateful to our donors, and for the grants we received through U.S. Congressman Maurice Hinchey (D-Hurley) and the Dyson Foundation, a philanthropic organization. Your support made the new clinic a reality.
“PRASAD’s new mobile dental clinic is going to ensure that thousands of Sullivan County children have access to the dental health care they need and otherwise might not receive,” said Hinchey, on his website.
Since 1996, PRASAD CDHP has relied on a unique mobile dental clinic to serve more than 62,381 children, providing more than 170,674 procedures, at over 17 different community sites in rural Sullivan and Ulster counties.
“Our goal in the coming years is to expand our program by implementing the PRASAD CDHP Advancement Project. Through this project, we plan to make consistent dental care accessible to many more children.
The new mobile clinic is the most essential component of this Project; however, it does have operating expenses; we invite you to support our cause of delivering “Miles for Smiles” to children in need by making a donation today,” said Program Administrator, Dr. Cecilia Escarra.
