Help an immigrant artist obtain quality dental care
Abraham Tesfelaise is a 20-year old immigrant from Eritrea who recently won a Congressional Art Competition, which means his work will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol for one year.
Like many recent immigrants, Abraham is confronted with numerous challenges. His biggest obstacle right now is a need for extensive and expensive dental care. Plagued by horrible headaches and bleeding gums, Abraham is using his art to raise funds to cover dental expenses that will eliminate these symptoms.
Help Abraham by donating today! Together we can help him have a pain-free smile.
