Raquel and Andy The BlissfulSage Foundation Inc. has presented charitable contributions to three entities in Belize. The president of the National Garifuna Council, Michael Polonio has received two cheques totaling $1800.00 from Mrs. Raquel Battle, President and Founder of the BlissfulSage Foundation, based in Los Angeles California. Additionally, Dr. Alba Mendez Sosa, President of The Belize Cancer Society and Dr. Beatriz Thompson, Chairperson of the scientific Committee of the Belize Cancer Society received a donation of $6,000. One of the contributions will fund a set of costumes for the Hamalali Esanigu Dance Group in Georgetown Village and the other will provide uniforms for children attending the newly established Gulisi Community Primary School in Dangriga. Donations to the Belize Cancer Society will support children receiving Cancer treatment in Merida as well as professional development for Doctors of the Belize Cancer Society. The BlissfulSage Foundation Inc. has been providing support for a number of Belizean charities in the educational, cultural, medical and environmental fields and there are plans for ongoing programmes of support for more Belizean charities. Currently, the foundation’s primary projects include the completion of a Hospice Care Center in Placencia Village. This project is in memory of Battle’s father who passed away from prostate cancer in February 2007. A Children’s Benefit Concert will be held at the Cathedral Center of St. Paul in Echo Park, Los Angeles California on February 16th, 2008 with proceeds supporting this hospice care building project. The purpose of this hospice care center is to care for the aging population in the small southern village, particularly those affected by cancer. President and Founder of the BlissfulSage Foundation, Raquel Battle is originally from Placencia Village and the contributions were facilitated by Belize’s Cultural Ambassador Andy Palacio, who serves as Educational and Cultural spokesperson for the BlissfulSage Foundation.
