Currently our mission is for the Dental-Point Project to deliver a much needed service to the refugee families. HPF has set up a dental unit, and the first of its kind for the camps across Northern Greece to provide refugees access to dental emergency care.
The dental clinic is in the Diavata camp, located close to the city of Thessaloniki where close to 2000 refugees are based. Here is where we call our base camp, but due to the great need for urgent dental care in many camps we regularly visit other military run camps for outreach work and therefore we request all our volunteers to be as adaptable, flexible and as mobile as possible for this to work successfully for our patients.
These camps include: Nea Kavala, Oreokastro, Derveni, Sindos Karamanli, Giannitsa,Cherso Camp and Nea Raidestos.
