Iqbal Fazal, along with a number of his charitable colleagues, was invited to a reception by Lord McColl – trustee of the Mercy Ships and patron of Bridge 2 Aid.

Iqbal, who has been at Smilesaver Dental Care in Silver Street for the past 33 years, is an avid supporter of Bridge 2 Aid, which provides dental treatment to people living in remote communities in Tanzania. At the reception, Iqbal was able to meet scores of like-minded people who have given their time and money to provide urgent dental care to millions of people in developing countries.
