Loloma heads back to Solomon Islands

On the 21st of June, the Loloma Foundation will be making their 7th journey to the end of the earth in the Solomon Islands.

For 7 days, the team of 20 volunteers will sail on the Bilikiki throughout the Florida and Russell Islands.

Our dentists will set up a two-chair operatory on the outside deck of the Bilikiki which will be capable of filling, extracting or restoring teeth.

Our medical team will set up general medical clinics onshore in different villages each day.  An optometric team will dispense readers and sunglasses. Contents of a 20 foot container will be dispensed to patients and medical facilities throughout the islands.

We are grateful to the Bilikiki for extending this unique opportunity to the people of the Solomon Islands and to our volunteers.

Truly a global venture!  Follow the journey on our Facebook page.
