Excitement was high at the Ashalley Botwe School park, where the Presbyterian Church, Ashalley Botwe and Madina districts, received full-sponsorship from Nivodent toothpaste to spice up their yearly Easter picnic celebration.
Nivodent toothpaste, a product of Salex West Africa, a Linn Global Group Company, has successfully carved a niche for itself with its outstanding Nivodent oral hygiene campaign in elementary schools in Ghana.
Known for its emphasis on the need for oral health, Nivodent could not hold back, but seized the opportunity to educate all and sundry about the benefits of ensuring good oral health, as many are bound to consume all kind of foods that can affect the condition of the mouth during the season.
Sixteen congregations under the Madina and Ashalley Botwe districts benefited from the gesture.
Talking about the product, Stephane Yapi, Head of Sales, Salex West Africa, said Nivodent toothpaste solves all issues relating to mouth and dental hygiene.
He added that Nivodent offers maximum cavity protection and protects the teeth against any form of germs.
“It has been scientifically proven that Nivodent strengthens the teeth and repairs weak spots before cavities start. It fights cavities on teeth surfaces and exposed roots, leaving the mouth feeling fresh and clean.”
The event, which was coupled with numerous activities, had the participants involved in soccer, volleyball and track events.
It also witnessed the presence of dignitaries like the Madina District Minister, Reverend Michael Ennim-Tetteh, and the Ashalley Botwe District Minister.
In a bid to raise awareness, Mr Yapi emphasised that oral hygiene is key, because it speaks volumes about what is going on in one’s body.
He added that a healthy mouth helps ward off medical disorders and decreases the risk of serious health problems.
He added that Nivodent is open to any platform interested in the education of oral hygiene, and is ready to offer dental screening to any society that shares a similar vision.
It was hinted that going forward, Nivodent would be the main sponsor for the Presbyterian Church festivities in the Madina and Ashalley Botwe districts.
At the end of the activities, Salex West Africa awarded the El Shaddai & Bethel congregation for being the winners of the soccer competition, and Emmanuel & East Legon Hills congregation for emerging winners of the volley ball competition.
