Dr PJ Power of Kinsale Dental travelled to Mombasa in February 2016 as a volunteer with the Ray of Sunshine Foundation. Over the course of ten days he took a hands on role with the team of volunteers building the rescue centre, a world away from his dental practice, family and friends in Kinsale, County Cork. The daily routine consisted of an early start, followed by construction tasks including carrying and shifting blocks, assisting the carpenters with fitting out the buildings, cleaning up during and after the construction projects and landscaping the small gardens of the Rescue Centre. While working in the searing heat was a difficult task at times, there were a number of breaks to facilitate rest, spending time with the local community and enjoying the time out of the practice! Dr Power was delighted to spend time with such a wonderful community and project, and is considering signing up for the Ray of Sunshine project in 2017.
