Make a Donation

Hillside Health Care International (HHCI) is a faith based, non-denominational, non-profit operation, supported by individual donors and charitable organizations. As we are a 501(c)(3) organization, your donation is fully tax-deductible.

The cost of operating the clinic exceeds $350,000 US annually, and the small fees assessed to program participants cover only a small fraction of operating costs. Operating a free healthcare clinic is an expensive proposition with medications and equipment to be paid for, vehicles, fuel, electricity bills and staff salaries to name a few of the major expenses. We encourage students and volunteers to fundraise for HHCI before and after their in-country experiences. Contact our Director of Development ( for fundraising and supporting materials.

On behalf of the volunteers, students, staff, Board of Directors, and the people of Southern Belize, we thank you for your support of Hillside Health Care International and for your interest in our life-sustaining programs.
