Nepal Earthquake Exposes Need for Better Buildings

Forty eight hours is all it took for our generous donors to answer our needs. We challenged our fellow Americans to find $20,000 to help rebuild and retrofit our two clinics in Nepal after two devastating earthquakes. We are so thankful for gifts to the Challenge Grant. Such generosity will help ensure that future earthquakes will not devastate the community that relies on our clinics.
Two earthquakes not only ruined existing structures, but the aftermath has exposed the need for better construction practices and the need to retrofit and reinforce buildings that may still be vulnerable to future geological events.
Our dental clinic in Nepal shares a building with a medical clinic and seven classrooms. This building is situated with three others, all of which need significant repair and reinforcement. During repair, the young students must survive in the elements of this already rough environment.  If you would like to help, please click here.

“Dr. Bogrow and his staff helped me deal with sleep apnea in a painless, non-invasive way without a C-PAP machine. Prior to using the dental appliance, my sleep study measured nine interruptions an hour. After getting used to, and wearing the appliance for over a year, my follow-up sleep study measured just TWO interruptions per hour. I don’t notice these interruptions at all and I am waking up feeling wonderfully well-rested! Dr. Bogrow’s been so kind and very patient with me, because getting the best results requires fine-tuning and patience as the appliance is adjusted. Dr. Bogrow takes time to listen to answer any questions I have. I truly appreciate the service he provides and would recommend this option to anyone with mild sleep apnea, before starting on a CPAP machine. As they say, “There’s nothing like a great night’s sleep!”
