The mission of the Hardwick Foundation is to treat and educate people toward a future of prevention, allowing each to live a pain-free dental life with dignity.
March 2023 Snapshot
Completed over 4 clinic days
The Video That Tells It All
Our team's mission was to promote sustainability by providing education and dental care to the Masai community. This video highlights some of the special moments during our time there.
Where Our Journey Began
The average income in this region is $1,000 a year so most dental care is prohibitive. It is our teams’ obligation and joy to provide care for those in pain. During our inaugural 2019 visit, there was no charge to the patients, some whom waited all day, and traveled miles and miles. During the 4 clinic days with 8 team members, 191 people were treated and 258 procedures were performed. One young woman said, “This has been a miracle for me!"
Where Our Journey Continues
The Hardwick Foundation has been generously donated 1 acre of land in the village of Aitong. This area serves 10,000 people weekly on their market day! We will be building a clinic to create sustainability in this region that lacks accessible and affordable dental care. Hiring a native dentist to provide care year-round is paramount! The fundraising has begun to make this vision a reality! Click below to see how you can help.

"My evenings were a nightmare because of the pain I used to experience every day. Cooking became a problem. Around sunset I became depressed because of the discomfort that awaited me. But thank you to the team that came to my rescue."
"There's no pain like of a tooth ache, even labor pains are nothing compared to that. I hate when a tooth hurts. I am so relieved by the extraction done."
"As a Maasai man, not being able to eat meat is depressing. It really broke my heart anytime I saw other men eating meat and I couldn't chew because of the pain. I am healed thanks to the doctors that came to help us."
