Supplies and funds are needed for purchase, shipment and other expenses associated with these clinics. All donated supplies and funds are 100% used to benefit the HBHS.
Police & Police Cadet
The Police Cadet has a small group of 105, all are going to school and participating in the training of the Police officers every evening after school. They are trained to be respectful, to protect themselves and learn about positive skills to use when faced by rocky roads. This is a nonprofit group who need help to provide snacks, uniforms, and sometimes even scholarships for them to attend high school when their parents can’t afford it. Eventually after they have received their education they become professional police officers to protect the country or area they live in. Their goal was to provide an alternative to many negative and self-defeating activities prevalent in our society in the early 1990’s. Both females and males are members of the Cadets and Police.

Christmas food hampers
Hopkins Village was established in 1942 as a replacement for a village further up its northern coast, Called New Town, which was devastated by a hurricane. It is the largest Garifuna Village in Belize, bordered by the Maya Mountains and the Cockscomb Range inland and the Caribbean Sea on the coast. Hopkins is considered the cultural center of the Garinagu population by most Belizeans.
Today, Hopkins is a small but vibrant community of approximately 3000 Garifuna, Creole, Maya, Indians, Mestizo and foreigners Who make up the culturally diverse village. Most villagers are subsistent Farmers and fishermen who have learned to utilize the fertile lands as well as their proximity to the Caribbean Sea. They have also begun sharing their knowledge, tradition and skills with visitors to Belize, adding an enriching experience to visitors’ stay. Through our food hampers, we will be able to feed our community during the holiday season.
