Kaffy’s support was demonstrated during a public sensitization walk tagged ‘Walk a Mile for a Smile’ organized by the Project Team of the Project Smile 4.0 Smile Makeover Contest. The ace dancer who is reputed as a fitness coach as well, championed the walk to raise awareness for the plight of people with dental defects and flaws. Posting severally on her Instagram account where she has over half a million followers and tweeting about the walk on Twitter handle, she called on her fans and followers to join the walk from YMCA building on Awolowo Road, Ikoyi to Falomo roundabout and back.
“Being a part of a cause as this which is concerned about transforming people’s lives for good is quite fulfilling. There are several walk initiatives which are aimed at promoting causes such as walks for Breast Cancer, Down syndrome, Sickle Cell, and HIV and truly these causes are commendable but a walk for people with dental defects is uncommon particularly in this side of world and that is intriguing and really caught my attention.” She enthused.Also speaking during speaking during a media interview, Dr. Amy Traore-Shumbusho, Initiator, Project Smile, said that Project Smile 4.0 is about smile as a gift to share and giving opportunity to persons who can’t afford to share this gift because they ‘don’t have it’ due to a dental defect or flaw, to be able to do so. Flanked by some beneficiaries of previous seasons, Dr. Shumbusho said that Project Smile 4.0 scheme seeks to award such deserving individuals a chance in a life time to correct their dental defects and have the perfect teeth emphasizing that the project is only open to persons from age eighteen and above.
Corroborating with Dr. Shumbusho, Project Director, Emmanuel Udoro said that the ‘Walk a Mile for a Smile’ is an integral part of the call-to-entry campaign which took off on World Oral Health Day, a month ago. Udoro explained that over a hundred entries have been received since the launch and expressed optimism that the prime targets would respond accordingly. He announced that entries would close on May 12.
