Dentist from Amsterdam treats homeless people for free.

This dentist from Amsterdam treats homeless people for free in his spare time, giving them a reason to smile.

A better tomorrow starts with the seeds we plant today. Since August 2016 I’m part of a preventive Dental Care project, in association with the Najib Foundation, that’s dedicated to patients with no or little access to dental care. On Sunday, November 27th we finally launched the project in Rotterdam to give 140 children instructions and carry out dental checks. The next couple of months we shall visit multiple locations in The Netherland to increase the awareness of proper dental heath care.

In the futher we hope to provide dental care for the homeless in Amsterdam and other city’s in The Netherlands!

Share this page in order to spread awareness of the importance of oral health to all communities!

How Photojournalism Killed Kevin Carter.

How Photojournalism Killed Kevin Carter

When this photograph capturing the suffering of the Sudanese famine was published in the New York Times on March 26, 1993, the reader reaction was intense and not all positive. Some people said that Kevin Carter, the photojournalist who took this photo, was inhumane, that he should have dropped his camera to run to the little girl’s aid. The controversy only grew when, a few months later, he won the Pulitzer Prize for the photo. By the end of July, 1994, he was dead.

Freed From ISIS, Yazidi Women Return in ‘Severe Shock’.

SHARIYA CAMP, Iraq — The 16-year-old lies on her side on a mattress on the floor, unable to hold up her head. Her uncle props her up to drink water, but she can barely swallow. Her voice is so weak, he places his ear directly over her mouth to hear her.

The girl, Souhayla, walked out of the most destroyed section of Mosul this month, freed after three years of captivity and serial rape when her Islamic State captor was killed in an airstrike. Her uncle described her condition as “shock.” He had invited reporters to Souhayla’s bedside so they could document what the terror group’s system of sexual abuse had done to his niece.

“This is what they have done to our people,” said Khalid Taalo, her uncle.

Since the operation to take back Mosul began last year, approximately 180 women, girls and children from the Yazidi ethnic minority who were captured in 2014 by the Islamic State, or ISIS, have been liberated, according to Iraq’s Bureau for the Rescue of Abductees.

Women rescued in the first two years after ISIS overran their ancestral homeland came home with infections, broken limbs and suicidal thoughts. But now, after three years of captivity, women like Souhayla and two others seen last week by reporters, are far more damaged, displaying extraordinary signs of psychological injury.

“Very tired,” “unconscious” and “in severe shock and psychological upset” were the descriptions used by Dr. Nagham Nawzat Hasan, a Yazidi gynecologist who has treated over 1,000 of the rape victims.

VIDEO: Donate a birth kit to Syrian refugee baby.

The struggle for new born children in Syria is heating up, and we need your support more than ever. Air strikes on hospitals where expectant mothers are giving birth are on the rise, and its very difficult for a mother to birth a child safely.

The only option for a new mother to give birth is in a refugee camp or in her own home, and she is lacking in the necessary birthing supplies.

We are working with Canada Caring to produce and deliver safe birthing kits to expectant mothers in Syria, so that these wonderful women have everything needed at this pivotal time in their lives.

We believe that it is our duty as human beings to treat all humans on this planet as equal, and every second we feel the heartbreak of these mothers who have to birth children in dangerous and unclean situations. And we will not stop our mission in Syria until every month and child can breath easily at night.

While conditions in Syria may be extremely dangerous, we are making our voices loud and clear that we support the victims of this war, and we are rallying the rest of the planet together to not only help the children and mothers in need, but to call for an end to this war.

And we couldn’t do it without your help. Our movement is only growing stronger and stronger, and we will provide support to the families in need in Syria until the war is finally over.

Please join us in our mission in restoring peace in Syria, and eventually all of the planet. We are the new generation, who aspires to create a heaven on Earth, and it all starts by supporting the people in the places where peace is furthest away.
