Trinity Dental Clinic produces enough
funds almost every month from the tiny
fees that it charges its patients to cover
almost all of its monthly expenses- staff
salaries, utilities, administrative fees,
and minor repairs and maintenance.

contribute almost entirely to
materials, pharmaceuticals, and
equipment used to treat the Liberian

Donations in excess of our operational
costs will invest in the future of Trinity

internship of dental professionals,
helping with the massive needs of
Liberia and West Africa.
