Every day is a good deeds day at DVI, but to celebrate National Good Deeds Day in a very special way DVI provided free dental care and oral hygiene education to several dozen children from Arazim (Cedars) School for Special Education, a special needs school serving students ages 6-11 who are victims of domestic violence, neglect or other family issues and suffering from behavioral or other issues. Also participating were kids from Beit Lynn Schusterman, a shelter serving children ages 4-13 who have been removed from their family home due to abuse or neglect.
The children also interacted with a medical clown who helped ease their anxiety in the waiting room and as they received treatment. DVI is truly a place of hope, healing and love where all are welcome.
