When Colgate-Palmolive, Nicaragua heard about ORPHANetwork’s mission and our focus on health and hygiene they quickly wanted to get involved and contribute. Two Colgate representatives attended our recent quarterly trainings where they instructed our church partners and orphanage directors on dental hygiene, and explained the products in the 12,000 kits that Colgate-Palmolive would soon be donating for our children.
Last week we received 4,032 kits containing toothbrushes, toothpaste and soap as well as posters, brochures, and DVDs with great messages on dental care and the importance of hand washing. The next 8,000 kits are on the way and they will go to our partners, On Eagles’ Wings, in Northern Nicaragua.
Colgate-Palmolive, Nicaragua, we thank you for caring about our children’s health and for the lives that will be blessed because of your generosity.
