Young Cambodian tennis players get tips on dental care

Non-profit NGO Three Hearts Foundation and Tennis Cambodia jointly organised a Dental Care awareness program for as many as 85 tennis playing kids at the Center of Phnom Penh Thmey Orphanage (CPPTO) on Friday.

Volunteer students from the University of Health and Sciences conducted an oral hygiene session during which the kids were given several valuable tips in proper dental care.

In the second part of the program, named A-Ha-Ha project 2015, members of the Cambodian Davis Cup team Bun Kenny and Delton Sophana Kim, along with several dignitaries, shared some fun tennis time with the kids on a mini court set up on the basketball court.

In her opening remarks, Hisae Arai, the managing director of THF and Tennis Cambodia’s Global Goodwill ambassador, stressed the importance of proper dental care for young players as part of their sports activities.

“We continue to focus our efforts in THF on vital health issues that are complimentary to sports and I thank Tennis Cambodia for its whole hearted support in all our campaigns” said Ms Hisae Arai.

“Our aim in Tennis Cambodia is not just to teach tennis skills but lessons of life to help boys and girls grow up in a healthy environment.

We continue to work with THF on several fronts to create this ideal atmosphere for kids to excel both in sports and education,” said secretary-general of Tennis Cambodia, Tep Rithivit.

Both Hisae Arai and Tep Rithvit thanked the director of Aspeca Orphanages, Kem Kimlang, who also oversees the CPPTO, for her support to this program and also for extending her co-operation to tennis training in various Aspeca branches.
