Juanito I. King Foundation, Inc. is an NGO based in Cebu, Philippines. Having 'Project Healthy Smile' as our partner is indeed an honor. Through PHS’s generous dental supply donations, we are able to cater to a much larger number of children in the rural communities in the province. Having been personally visited by PHS, conducting dental education and rendering dental services themselves to the children in the mountain areas of Cebu is indeed a great thing to do. We are grateful that they have reached the Philippines.
With Hollie Mae's and Michelle's dedicated efforts, surely many children around the globe will be able to smile with much confidence.
Project Healthy Smile is a fantastic organization with dedicated and passionate leaders, Hollie Mae and Michelle. As a past volunteer I have seen first hand the amount of time and effort put into every PHS event to ensure maximum donations are received for those in need. At PHS, it is truly 'all about the kids.'
During their shot stay in Haiti, Michelle and Hollie showed the children at Lamardelle’s orphanage new techniques on how to take care of their teeth, to my amazement even after their departures the children were still helping each other to better themselves especially the flossing that was unknown to them before, Micelle and Hollie also made a big impact showing the teachers at the school of five hundred and fifty children, on how to continue their work, really their trip to Haiti brought a big healthy smile on everybody’s faces and we hope that their good work will continue all over the world, we are thanking you so much for the time you spent with us and hope that you will have the opportunity to come back to teach the next wave of children coming to our doors, once again thank you.
I just want to say that Michelle and Hollie were great to us. I and my wife are running the children home in Thu Duc District, Saigon Vietnam. We have now 17 kids that are living with us in our home. One of the things that we really care is their teeth. And thank you so much that you guys came and help us in training our kids how to protect their teeth. Our two kids named Ho and Dao. They got very bad teeth and suffered the paints and we once took them to the local dentist but it cost us a fortune to get their teeth fixed. Michelle and Hollie came not only help the kids to clean their teeth but to support them to get their teeth fixed. Now you can see a real big smiles on their faces. We just pray and ask God to continue using you guys to help kids with their real big smile. Love to see you guys again. Sang and Jen from Eden Family of Vietnam.
Am from Uganda (East Africa) and I am the founder and executive Director of Meeting Point Kampala which gives support to people with Aids, and also owns a Learnig Centre for orphans and vulnerable children from slum areas. Michelle and Hollie came here in May this year to help these children with dental supplies, treated the children and also donated dental supplies to over 500 children at the Centre. Now the children have learnt to keep their teeth clean and Michelle is also preparing to send more supplies before the end of of this year. these two ladies are wonderful, despite the fact that Africa is very far away from Washington, they were concerned about the poor African Children. and what surprised me is that Michelle left her young baby at home and decided to come to Africa to do an unpaid work this is really wonderful. All of us here in Meeting Point are proud and praise the work done by Project Health Smile because all our poor children are now smiling. Long Live Project Health Smile Long Live Michelle and Hollie
I met Michelle and Hollie when they were in Nha Trang, Vietnam to do their project. I recognized that Project Health Smile is a valuable organization . Michelle and Hollie worked tirelessly to help poor children at Loc Tho Charity School learn how to take good care of their teeth. I'm very aapreciative to all of their efforts I'm very proud of them - the young women - who devote their time and efforts to help children. I'm very happy if I can do something for their project. Hope to see Michell and Hollie again soon.
As a provider in the field of dentistry, I am approached by a number of for-profit and non-profit organizations to donate time or monetary funds. Since I have limitations with both, I prefer to restrict my energy and resources toward a few organizations whose providers are passionate and driven, and whose establishment has a strategy design with proven results. Project Healthy Smiles succeeds in this. I've had the pleasure to meet Michelle Patterson prior to her conception of Project Healthy Smiles. I found her as a compassionate individual who, after a journey to Vietnam and meeting orphaned children, truly wanted to make their lives better. In the field of dentistry, we are aware of how important prevention is. Unfortunately, this accepted belief is not emphasized in all cultures. I am proud of Michelle for unselfishly spending her own personal resources and time to educate children who are oftentimes overlooked and forgotten. Project Healthy Smiles enables them with knowledge and tools that will help alter their dental habits and therefore improve their long-term health. I do believe in the structure of Project Healthy Smiles but, most importantly, I believe in Michelle's heartfelt benevolence and goodwill towards these young children.
I've seen the women behind this organization work tirelessly throughout the year with a level of passion that I've never seen before. I've given and will continue to give to PHS because it seems like every dollar you give they turn it into miracles. I wouldn't hesitate to promote PHS to anyone looking to direct their hard-earned money to a great cause.
I have joined Michelle to an Orphanage in Thu Duc Dist., HCMC (Vietnam). So memorable. Project Healthy Smile is a valuable organization I found and I hope they can support more and more children with misfortunes over the world as they have done so far. Hope to have chance to join with PHM soon!
