Bringing brighter smiles to children

The Foundation

Misheel Kids Foundation (MKF) is dedicated to supporting the maintenance of dental health for underprivileged children in orphanages and day care centres in Mongolia. To this end, the foundation raises funds. The children treated by MKF do not have access to dental care or instruction in oral hygiene and nutrition through other means. Malnutrition, neglect by overburdened parents and homelessness are just some of the reasons for the desolate nutritional and dental condition of thousands of children in Mongolia. Especially in the capital Ulan Bator, numerous orphanages and day-care centres have been established, which try to secure shelter and healthy nutrition for the worst affected, often very young children.

Founded in 2015, MKF is a registered NGO in Mongolia; it also maintains a support association in Germany with a German donations account.

Dental Care for Children in need

What we do

MKF currently works with eight orphanages and daycare centres. In addition, MKF undertakes mobile outreach projects, called Dental Treks, to rural regions. Local dental practices, business, government sponsors and private individuals currently support this work.

It is almost superfluous to mention: MKF relies on donations. Every donation, no matter what the amount, is urgently needed and is used exclusively for dental treatment. The participating local dentists and practices work at contractually agreed significantly reduced fees and charges.
