UNIFIL's Ghanaian peacekeepers have been actively providing much-needed dental services to the communities within their area of operations. The peacekeepers aim to help relieve dental issues suffered by the local population and prevent tooth and gum disease from happening in the first place. Their focus is on the most vulnerable Lebanese who need help during this period of economic hardship.
Recently, Ghanaian peacekeepers organized a dental care clinic at the hospital within their base, inviting the Lebanese public for the day. Eleven men and four women from nearby villages visited and received care.
The fifteen patients received diagnoses and treatments for various conditions, including missing teeth, loose dentures, and permanent fillings. Thanks to the expertise of the dedicated Ghanaian dentist, all these cases were successfully attended to, providing much-needed relief to the patients.
To ensure their comfort and well-being, patients were given appropriate medication at the end of their visit. UNIFIL and Ghanaian peacekeepers are committed to not only addressing immediate dental issues but also promoting overall health and welfare within local communities.
Ghanaian peacekeepers have been part of UNIFIL since 1978. Their numbers increased as of 2006, along with their support to the local communities. Over the past 16 years, Ghanaian peacekeepers have provided countless forms of support and assistance to local communities. They are proud to be able to make a difference in the lives of the people by providing essential services to those in need.
