The Black 6 Project is looking for volunteers to help with a dental mission to the island of Mindoro, Philippines. During this trip, volunteers will be able to assist in providing basic dental care to an indigenous tribe called the “Mangyan.” The villages they reside in will be remote and may require access via boat or hiking in. This will be an opportunity to serve a community that is far from access to basic health and dental care. To see more about our previous missions to the communities, see our videos.
Dates: November 18~26, 2019
(depending on costs of airline flights at time of booking)
