Nepal 2012 A Toothbrush for every School-Child

A box of 444 toothbrushes travel by airplane from Canada to Seoul, Korea where it was cut open, dumped out, and inspected by Korean Customs Officers. After re-packaging, the box flew to Kathmandu, Nepal then continued in a very small airplane to Tumlingtar, Nepal. From Tumlingtar to Gudel the box was carried by porter Bier Badu.

Hogus sat on the well-traveled box of toothbrushes at the school in Gudel.

During the celebration at Gudel the 3 school teachers gave out all 444 toothbrushes. Every school child got their very own toothbrush and the rest went to adults.

Many families share a single toothbrush and you can see by the faces that people appreciated this gift. We were amazed and humbled that so many children were overwhelmed with joy now having their own toothbrush. Toothbrushes were donated by SunStar and Dr. Perry Kurz.
