New Colgate Award!

The GCDFund ambassador for Smiles and Hope Tanzania, Prue Preston, has been named Colgate’s Unsung Hero 2012 for her work with orphans and street children in Mwanza, Tanzania. This award comes with a donation of £5000 for Prue’s chosen charitable cause, the Global Child Dental Fund Smiles and Hope Tanzania.

The award will be spent on two projects. The first will be on assisting orphan children to receive dental care.

The second project will be a grant for the pediatric department of the dental school. The money will be used to purchase new equipment.
