As part of measures to improve the health and well-being of residents of the FCT, the Al-Habibiyyah Islamic Society (AIS) and the Whitestone Dental Initiative (WDI) has offered free dental and optical services to 300 FCT residents.
The Director of the society, Imam Fuad Adeyemi said Sunday inj Abuja that the essence of the two-day outreach for residents in Guzape, Kpaduma, Kobi and environs is in continuation of their humanitarian works as enjoined by Allah to take care of neighbours.
“We also discover that many Nigerians don’t care about their dental health such that many don’t know how to take care our dental health and it is one of the important aspects of our lives such that Prophet Muhammad said he would have directed Muslims to be brushing their mouths five times daily. Secondly, we decide to create awareness and also solve the problem at the same time. We are going to improve on this outreach and this would be taken to other states too,” Adeyemi said.
On her part, the founder of the Whitestone Dental Initiative, Macpherson Pamela, said the initiative is to create awareness to the people especially in the rural communities and also to treat them free of charge.
“Many have myopic views about dental care, such that when people have dental diseases, they result to short cuts of ‘touch and go’ and the problem return and become aggravated. We have reached many places and the impression of the people is that few people would have dental issues, until we begin and the numbers of people requiring dental care would be surprising. It is important for the people to prioritise dental since the mouth is the major source where other liquid or solid materials passed into the body.
