Khandice Tillett, Project Manager, World Pediatric Project Belize says the clinic will be this Sunday, starting at 8 a.m. at the KHMH.
Kandice Tillet Project Manager World Pediatric Project Belize: “We provide critical surgical care for children, we bring teams from the US to Belize to do surgeries and we also take children requiring surgery that’s not available in this country to the US. We have been in Belize for the past 15 years and we have healed over 10,000 Belizean children.”

We are inviting pediatric patients, we serve from birth to 21 years that have problem such as Kidney disease, blood in the urine, experiencing possible kidney failure to the clinic this Sunday at KHMH. We also have our General surgery clinic, that involves patients that have bowel problems, tumors, any growths, intestinal problems anything like that to come to our clinic. We are asking patients with any of the conditions or suspected conditions to come to the clinic.”
