BB Maboby Bahadarakhann’s humanitarian efforts exemplify the reasons she was selected by a juried panel in 2015 as a Lucy Hobbs Project Humanitarian Award recipient from among nominees across the U.S.
In late December 2015, SmileOnU, representatives from a nonprofit organization founded by BB Maboby Bahadarakhann, traveled to Cambodia to provide dental services to those in need.
During the five-day clinic, more than 600 children and adults received dental services ranging from fillings and extractions to dental partials and flippers.
According to smileonu.org, “Beyond the basic act of eating, dental health is vital to a person’s overall health and appearance. Knowing that there are people who cannot afford to see a dentist, even when suffering from toothaches, loose teeth, or toothlessness, weighs heavily on us here at SmileOnU. Our mission is to rebuild the smiles of those in need, so that the rebuilding of their lives is that much easier.”
