Sinai 2007

21 Jul 2007 1 113
Operation Wallacea ; S. Sinai 2007 (Health & Safety Officer) At the Camp, one of my duties as HSO turned out to be amateur dentistry on Sheikh Soliman's teeth. (I had one of those clove oil kits as we were there for some weeks.) The Bedouin kids don't get 'sweets' as such, just lump white sugar; and no toothbrush. Consequently all their teeth are terrible and most Bedouin seem to suffer with dreadful cavities and ulcers. Do what you can I s'pose… In the 3rd World there is no 'health-care' system as we know it in the West.
