The Foundation

WHAT WE DO
Misheel Kids Foundation provides dental care for more than 600 underprivileged children in Mongolia at seven local orphanages and daycare centers. Each orphanage and daycare center receives care from one of seven local dental clinics. The foundation works with orphanages, dentists, dental clinics and private, corporate and governmental sponsors in Mongolia and worldwide. Donations of any size are needed and much appreciated!

BACKGROUND
Homelessness is a major crisis for vulnerable children in Mongolia’s capital, Ulaanbaatar, where severe long winters worsen the problem. A number of orphanages have emerged to address the crisis and try to provide shelter for unsupervised and often very young children living on and under the streets in the city’s heated sewers and tunnels, and in “ger districts”.
