Toothbrush, toothpaste donation puts smiles on the faces of Afrika Tikkun

  • CommunityAfrikaTikkun
A wise dentist once said you don’t have to brush all your teeth, only the ones you want to keep! In the interests of a healthy smile, a team of Grade 8 to 12 pupils from King David High School Linksfield went to the Uthando Centre in the Johannesburg CBD. Their aim: to donate toothbrushes and toothpaste to the young people of Afrika Tikkun, a non-profit organisation that caters for the youth.

The group, led by Tarryn Forman, has been collecting toothpaste and toothbrushes at the school over the past two months. Tarryn, 18, has partnered with Afrika Tikkun before, when she started an initiative to collect books for Afrika Tikkun centre libraries.

“We all have immense power, power which enables us to change the lives of so many by doing the simplest acts of kindness,” said Tarryn when addressiing her school during assembly. “Why would you waste that power? Every single child deserves to smile.”

A thousand dental hygiene products were donated to Uthando.
