Sandals supports dental care for prisoners

The Sandals Foundation will later today present a dental chair to the Bordelais Correctional Facility (BCF), to assist with dental care for inmates.

The chair is valued at US$ 8,000.

The Sandals Foundation has said that the donation is part of an ongoing partnership between the organisation and Great Shape Inc that has been active for two consecutive years.

As a result of the collaboration, free dental care is facilitated across the Caribbean in areas where the need for formal health care is great.

The request for a dental chair was made during a visit to BCF.

BFC officials indicated that the chair would assist the medical unit in providing a more holistic service to inmates.

The formal hand over of the chair has been scheduled for this morning at 10:30.
