The Corozal Sugar Cane Producers Association (CSCPA) under its Social Program commitment invited The Belize Mission Project to conduct free of cost medical assistance to member cane farmers and their families. The Mission Project consists of foreign doctors from the USA with different specialization. The program was carried out jointly with the St. Francis Xavier Credit
Union and Presbyterian Clinic in Patchakan Village. It was a two week program whereby farmers and their families received special treatment in fluorides, dental and audiology. The fluoride program was directed at the primary school level where over 4,000 children in the
different primary schools of the district were treated.
The program was well received by all who participated and which created high level of expectations for the program to be repeated in the subsequent years ahead. The CSCPA extends its appreciation to Mr. David Akierman who was very instrumental in attracting the
Belize Mission Project and its success; also special recognition goes to the St. Francis Xavier Credit Union and its Leadership Mr. Rafael Dominguez and Mr. Michael Riverol. The CSCPA Board of Directors and Staff were directly responsible in executing the program and its
effectiveness. The CSCPA recognizes that such social programs are crucially important under the livelihood program being promoted in the rural areas of our district.
