Help AidJoy Ship 20,000 Toothbrushes to Children in Need
Date:7/27/2013

Greenville, SC (PRWEB) July 27, 2013

AidJoy is assisting in the donation of 20,000 toothbrushes that will be delivered to children in need in the Peruvian side of the Amazon rainforest. The generous gift, donated by the ADEC Group, will help improve the lives of children in remote villages of Peru. AidJoy is seeking a shipping partner to transport the brushes from Greenville, SC to Miami, FL.

For most of us, a toothbrush is a pretty simple necessity. "We take them for granted, but elsewhere around the world, it can be life changing,” says Jonathan Shanin, founder and Executive Director of AidJoy, a Greenville, South Carolina based non-profit group.

One of the primary health problems for children in this remote region of Peru is the lack of basic dental care. "Most people only earn $300 or $400 a year to take care of their whole family," says Shanin, "Spending $2 or $3 on a toothbrush is a considerable expense."

When a cavity goes untreated, the decay eats into the center of the tooth, and eventually enters the nerves and blood vessels. From that point, bacteria can move into the bloodstream and travel throughout the body. By gaining access to basic dental care, like a toothbrush, these children can drastically reduce their chances for severe dental disease and potentially life-threatening infections.

To help prevent such illness, AidJoy is searching for a partner to transport these 20,000 toothbrushes to Miami, their waypoint before moving on to Peru. The 114 boxes of toothbrushes are contained on two pallets, and ready to be shipped. If you or your firm can assist us in getting these simple, but potentially life-saving items, into the hands of children in need, please contact us at (864) 246-8123 or help(at)aidjoy(dot)org.
