Hillside was so excited to welcome Prime Minister of Belize, Honourable John Briceño to our clinic! Prime Minister Briceño visited Hillside Clinic as one of his stops while visiting southern Belize on February 20th.
Prime Minister Briceño and his team were given a tour of the clinic, rehabilitation, nursing center, and Abby’s House. They learned about all the services Hillside provides the community free of charge and the impact of our work over the past 20 years.
The Prime Minister said that the visit to Hillside was one of the highlights of his trip and was quoted saying, “I’ve walked the facilities, I’m quite pleased and it warms me that there are still good people in this world that want to help those in need.” This is only the second time in Hillside history that the country’s Prime Minister has visited the clinic!
The Prime Minister also stated, “I want to assure them that they will have the full support of the Government of Belize.”
The tour ended on the third floor of the clinic with an interview by the media and a presentation as a token of our appreciation for the Prime Minister’s visit to Hillside.
