Project Belize is a non-proft corporation that annually sends a group of doctors, nurses & dentists to the Central American country of Belize. The group provide much needed medical treatment to people living in the remote villages of southern Belize.

our history

Dr QuinnProject Belize developed from a small group of doctors, dentists, nurses, and social workers from the Nacogdoches area who were involved with the development of the East Texas Community Health Clinic in 1987. The group responded to a request by Amigos International to visit Belize and provide critically needed dental and medical care in some of the more remote villages of this small country. The experience was rewarding enough that the group incorporated and has made annual trips since then. In recent years, the group has invited several nursing students from SFASU, providing them with an excellent experience in cross cultural primary health care.

Fundinghow we’re funded

Project Belize is self funded by each years participants, but has received donations from several individuals and groups. The Lions Club & Altrusa Club of Nacogdoches have assisted in the collection of glasses and funds for trips in the past. Several other private individuals have donated funds for medications and local physicians have contributed sample and extra medications for the trip.

For the past several years, Dr. Robert Lehmann, a local Opthamologist, and his staff have processed and coded glasses that have been donated and collected by the local Lion’s Club for each year’s trip.
