Did you know that over forty thousand persons in Belize are diagnosed with Diabetes? That is an alarming rate especially since many persons do not know they are diabetic and are therefore not being treated. The disease creeps in unexpectedly and can have negative health risks, at times fatal, if it is not treated. In in an effort to spread awareness on the “silent killer” on Saturday at the Central Park, the Rotaract Club of Orange Walk will be hosting a Diabetes Fair. Chanelle Lizarraga is the Community Service Director of the Club who told us more…..

“We are going to be having nurses and doctors out there who will be providing free glucose testing for the public in general so we would like to invite everyone to come out and support as they always have so it is free of charge why not take advantage of it.”

“Why is it just being done is it a target to those that suffer with diabetes or…?”


CHANELLE LIZARRAGA – Community Service Director, Rotaract Club


“Not necessarily we also want to create awareness in Orange Walk specially because recently am not too sure about the figures but there has been an increase on the number of persons who have been diagnose with diabetes so we are trying to begin to build that awareness in our community and as well to help the persons who are already diagnose.”  

Of note is that last Saturday, the club hosted its Retro Dance in order to raise funds for community projects. Lizarraga says the funds raised at the dance will go towards renovations at the Northern Regional Hospital. Special thanks are extended to Hernan Perez, Escat Salon, Cuello’s Distillery, Garcia’s Tacos and the wider public for their continued support.
