Grassroots Asia donates medical and dental supplies to mobile services that offer free care to remote villages, orphanages and schools. Parents are encouraged to send children to school (especially girl children) when they know medical care is given at the school. Grassroots Asia helped to forge a partnership between a local dental college and NGO to expand mobile services to remote villages and schools in Odisha. Mobile dental equipment was donated to the Angkor Children's Hospital in Siam Reap, Cambodia, greatly expanding their care to rural areas.
