Help us support our employees during this time of need!
Every day, our committed employees work to support the community we serve. Now, they need our help. Our organization is committed to ensuring that our employees are able to maintain financial stability and provide day-to-day necessities for their families during the coronavirus crisis.
We kindly ask that you join us in supporting our dedicated employees who currently are on the frontline helping to treat emergency dental referrals from emergency rooms across Oahu. Your gift will help provide financial support so they can purchase essential medicines and other emergency supplies. Help keep our employees safe and healthy so our full crew may return to their work serving our community.
The organization was established in 1983 deploying global surgical missions. In 2000 Hawaii's only no-cost dental clinic was developed to take care of our local people to focus on the dental needs of our underserved community.
Since COVID-19, the clinic has been operating in "Skeleton Crew" mode in anticipation of funding cuts from sources such as the State & City Grant-In-Aids and private foundations. Emergency departments such as Kaiser, Tripler, Queen's, Kuakini and even the VA are referring urgent dental cases to us because hospitals don't have the equipment to treat dental cases.
WHY IT'S IMPORTANT -- A TESTIMONY:
"Thank you so much! I was in so much pain and because my dentist was closed due to the pandemic, I had to fill the hole of my tooth with a Q-tip because when I breathed it hurt like crazy! I am truly thankful for Aloha Medical Mission's Dental Clinic!!!" ~ Loucinda L.
