The trip that triggered the formation of Building Blocks... 

Building Blocks laid it’s foundation in the summer of 2011, when a small team travelled to Trincomalee, Eastern Sri Lanka to provide dental aid work at two orphanages.

 

The project was small in scale and the team initially treated over 120 children; however as word spread, so did the demand, and children from the local community were happy to queue for hours just to gain essential treatment.

 

We were shocked to see the extent to which these children lacked basic dental hygiene.

 

This visit triggered the formation of Building Blocks and informed us that one of our aims should be to promote prevention of health related issues.
