Free Dental Assistance Program for Homeless

A few months ago, Samuel Palacios, Student Ministry staff member in Barcelona, mentioned to us that after a meeting between "Tinc Gana" ("I´m Hungry") and EMSI Misión, they decided to start a free dental health program for the homeless.

Today, this project is a reality and Samuel sent us a few lines to describe how it´s been going:

"Thanks to the partnership between EMSI Misión and Tinc Gana, we´ve developed another way to help the homeless. It consists of offering them the opportunity to been seen by a doctor and accompanied throughout the entire treatment process.

One man named Jesús was the first to be attended for free by a dentist. As he said, "now I can eat without difficulty and I feel like I´ll be able to get a job." We thought that starting this new program with someone named Jesús was a great idea!"

"‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ "
-Jesus Christ
