Wow! The years have flown by and a many new chapters have been written in the story of Smile Alliance International.  Finally, Our Website is back and I am going to update you on the many changes.  It will take some time but it’s time to do this so we can move forward into the new decade.  Since it’s start, SAI has been an all volunteer organization.  Our board of directors has seen many changes, including the passing of our dear friend and secretary, Hilary Foss.  Richard and Vicki Nelson lived in Ukraine from 2006-2011 and supervised and participated in the different outreaches there including Dr. Richard working for five years with the Mercy Trucks Dental Ministry from it’s conception.  This ministry is still ongoing and is completely Ukrainian organized and run with over 100 Ukrainian dentists volunteering to keep it functioning.  Since their return to the US, they have been active in sending much needed humanitarian aid to partner organizations to help the many refugees and under-severed children and elderly, especially in rural areas.  Thanks to the numerous individuals and the ongoing support of the Cle Elum, Washington SDA church, this has been possible.  In 2011, SAI donated Smile House to Manna Worldwide and they have completed it and their ministry for young people continues.  I will post pictures in the near future.

Recently, SAI was gifted with portable dental equipment and supplies which are being donated to several local ministries as well as Zambia and the Dominican Republic.  Thank you to all our supporters and friends for your prayers and financial assistance.
