ROTARY CLUB HOSTS FINAL CLINIC

ROTARY CLUB HOSTS FINAL CLINIC

Today, the Rotary Club of Belize is hosting the last of three Pediatric Cardiology Clinics through its Gift of Life Programme.

The final clinics is being held at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital, serving child heart patients from Belize City and those that might have missed the first two sessions. The clinics started in Dangriga on Friday serving child heart patients in both the Stand Creek and Toledo Districts, then moved on to the KHMH to serve patients from the other districts.

Teresita Perez-Martinez, member of the GoL Committee, explained that this far the specialists that came from the US to hold the clinics have seen around 96 patients, many of them returning for follow-up visits from last year.

Martinez added that this clinic boasts an expanded service, with a second team on site performing diagnostic procedures.

“We hold these clinics every six months and encourage people to bring their children to get the help they need” Martinez said.

GoL teams visit Belize twice a year, once in January and the other in August. The program has been running since 1977, and sent over 350 children abroad for surgery. In 2014, the GOL team performed some surgeries in Belize for the first time.
