- BioHorizons Camlog and Henry Schein Dental Germany help Ukrainian children choose a life path

Basel, 19 August 2019BioHorizons Camlog and Henry Schein Dental Germany supported Children-UA, an organisation running educational camps in Switzerland for underprivileged children from Ukraine aged 12 to 15. There are about 100’000 orphans in Ukraine (UATV, 2017), living in state-run institutions. Within the Children-UA camps, children are taught emotional intelligence, critical thinking, and teamwork. In addition, activities were held that helped the children understand how their skills and interests can translate into careers, which included guest speakers who shared their stories making it possible for the children to realize potential careers in their future.

In cooperation with Children-UA, BioHorizons Camlog and Henry Schein Dental Germany organised an immersion into the dental professions for 24 children participating in the camp. On July 31, 2019, Mr. Paul Delgado, Director of International Sales & Education, Camlog, led a child-oriented workshop to present the history of dental implantology and how Camlog has been solving a problem of toothlessness to date. Mr. Delgado introduced the current global trends in digital dentistry, which was a very interesting and important topic for children. It was also discussed what professions exist in dentistry and what the children will need to become a specialist in this field.

At the end of the presentation, the children understood the importance of daily oral hygiene. As an encouragement, each child received a dental kit, personally packed by Team Schein Members, which included toothpaste, electric toothbrushes – generously donated by Curaden Germany GmbH - and dental floss to maintain a healthy and clean mouth.  


 
This initiative is part of Henry Schein Cares, Henry Schein’s global corporare social responsibility programme, which stands on four pillars: engaging Team Schein Members to reach their potential, ensuring accountability by extending ethical business practices to all levels within Henry Schein, promoting environmental sustainability, and expanding access to health care for underserved and at-risk communities around the world. Health care activities supported by Henry Schein Cares focus on three main areas: advancing wellness, building capacity in the delivery of health care services, and assisting in emergency preparedness and relief.


About Children-UA
Children-UA is an association that runs educational camps in Switzerland for underprivileged children from Ukraine aged 12 - 15. Founded in 2008 in Basel, Children-UA organized 8 camps for Ukrainian orphans and in 2018 provided assistance to the Children-RU camp for Russian orphans. Each camp is designed for maximum of 20-24 children, which allows volunteers to spend enough time with each child, achieving a deeper effect. Over the past 10 years, more than 150 children have taken part in educational camps Children-UA, which has led to children entering higher schools and universities after graduation from secondary schools.

The vision of Children-UA is to help orphans from Ukraine get a fair chance for a brighter future. Education plays a vital role in this process, which becomes difficult if a child doesn’t have parents to talk to about it or ask for advice from. Thus, during annual educational camps Children-UA team boosts children's motivation to pursue higher education. For more information, visit www.children-ua.org.
