Greece: Dental care for refugees | DW Documentary

The German Dentist Alexander Schafigh has opened a dental clinic on the Greek island of Chios. The need is great.

Those that flee their homeland often have other things to worry about than going to the dentist. Like Awad and Ihab, who suffer from toothaches, and haven’t been to the dentist in a long time. They are cousins and have fled from the Gaza Strip. The two young men have been living for the last few days on the Greek island of Chios in a refugee camp. They have finally gotten an appointment with the dentists from Germany. The diagnosis is many cavities. The Schafighs have in just a short time opened a pop-up clinic that cares for refugees and is financed by donations. “We get so much appreciation in return”, says the pleased dentist.
