Vision: To build and operate a hospice care center for the benefit of the people in Southern Belize.
Dr. Thomas Smith came to Belize in 2011 with the End of Life Nursing Education Consortium training team led by Dr. Betty Ferrell of City of Hope, Los Angeles. This training was facilitated by Blissfulsage Foundation and the Belize Ministry of Health and was the catalyst for the beginning of the first hospice home care program in southern Belize-The Edlin Leslie Sr. Hospice. Dr. Smith was the INSIRATIONAL DONOR whose generosity launched the Edlin Leslie Sr. Hospice Building Fund established and managed by Blissfulsage Foundation in Belize.
