Thank you for your interest in the  
"Belize Mission Project"
 

This project began in 1993.  It was originally known as "The Fishin' Mission."  At that time, the trip focused on two things:  dental/medical mission work and professional fishing.  Dr. Frank Whipps, a practicing orthodontist in Centralia, IL was one of the individuals who helped start "The Fishin' Mission."  He began to feel an inner desire to focus strictly on dental and medical mission work.  This desire was shared by many of the now regular group participants.   As a result, the "Belize Mission Project" was formed.  Belize Mission Project Trip 2003 marked a decade of existence.

The group, which travels to Belize at least one week a year, typically consists of approximately 40 dentists, physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, dental hygienists and assistants, nurses, dental technicians, general helpers, and everyone in between. 

Each year we usually have about 50% new faces and the rest are repeaters.

The group consists of a very diverse set of people from all ages and backgrounds with one similarity...a desire to volunteer their time and talents to serve others less fortunate with dental, medical and spiritual needs.
