Taisia Cooper, a Registered Dental Hygienist in British Columbia, is preparing to embark on a volunteer trip to Poland to provide no-cost dental care for Ukrainian refugees as part of an interprofessional, collaborative medical team. She will be providing compassionate and trauma-informed no-cost dental care for Ukrainian refugees of all ages as they continue to be forced to endure violence and are in their early stages of fleeing war-torn areas of Ukraine.
The itinerary and clinical space has been arranged by the US-based International Medical Relief Organization (IMR) since the beginning of the war. However, all costs for providing care are being paid for by the volunteers. Taisia has been approved to volunteer in May, 2023, and is seeking financial support through a fundraising page to assist in her trip expenses.
