A team of ten dental practitioners from Washington DC, USA, went to Soufriere on a dental mission. The team, headed by Terry Victor, decided to spend a few days on the island, in Soufriere, providing free dental services to both children and adults.
The team expressed its extreme pleasure to be of service to the community. Dr. Terry Victor also seemed quite elated to inform all present that this experience was particularly special for him, since he was born in Saint Lucia.
The team was stationed at the Soufriere Regional Development Foundation’s boardroom from Saturday 28 to Monday 30 April. 2018. The latter date was utilized to cater exclusively for primary school students.
Mr. Solomon, Operations Manager, stated that he was thankful for such gestures of benevolence. He emphasized that the difficulty with which quality, affordable healthcare is obtained here underscores the significance of this act of philanthropy.
