Benghazi, 27 June 2015:
Hundreds of Benghazi children have been given lessons in dental hygiene in an education drive organised . . .[restrict]by the Libyan Red Crescent.
The main targets of the campaign have been children from internally displaced families who are sheltering in the city in schools and camps .
Eighteen centres were set up to give fun-based lessons to the kids aged between five and 18. At the heart of the teaching was an outsize set of teeth on which the children could practice their brushing skills.
The Red Crescent also threw in warnings about keeping away from interesting-looking objects lying around which could be deadly unexploded ordinance.
So far, some thousand children have been through the three-hour sessions. At the end of their training, each kid has been given a goodie bag containing a toothbrush and toothpaste, some soap, shampoo and ear-cleaning buds.
