HELP! I hate to do it - but I have to beg for your donations for an amazing opportunity.
As the Belize Wildlife & Referral Clinic  starts its 5th year of operation as a registered non-profit in Belize, our x-ray processor has already given us significant "grief", several repairs, high costs in chemicals and much extra work. At this point we have to replace the 3.000$ processor... OR, with your help, "go digital" with US refurbished machine for only 8.000$!

The background on the organisation: BWRC supports wildlife conservation in Belize with free rescue, medical care in the field and at our hospital, rehabilitation for imperilled wildlife, as well as training and education. Most of BWRC's patients are trauma cases, many victims of human wildlife conflict and the x-ray is our most important piece of equipment. Please check out our website www.belizewildlifeclinic.org for more information on the Belize Wildlife & Referral Clinic - BWRC, watch the video below which was made last year introducing our mission, vision and activities. 

Background on the x-ray offer: While digital x-ray seemed far out of reach (we were quoted 35.000 when we started only 4 years ago) we have now received an great offer and we hope you will help us make this dream come true for wildlife in Belize. Thanks to our advisor Dr. Adolf Maas, a few years having gone by, and systems being refurbished and replaced regularly in the US, we now have an offer to upgrade to digital for only 8.000 US, making this only 5.000$ more then the needed repair of the old processor!

Thanks to our long time supporter from the US, Clara Lee Arnold, BWRC also has been given the opportunity to use the Belize Economic and Environmental Development Fund as a fiscal sponsor to raise funds in the US.  So for those of you who know and trust BWRC and want to support this directly, you can also donate via Paypal to info@beedfund.org and enter "BWRC - x-ray" as a subject.

BWRC depends on the help of countless individuals like yourself, volunteers, organisations and other helping hands to provide free care and rehabilitation to imperilled and orphaned wildlife. Please consider making a donation or sharing this campaign with someone how may.
Thank you!

And of course, do not hesitate to contact us via email with any questions you may have - Dr. Isabelle

Dear Supporters and Donors

Thank You for your kind assistance and generous support to this campaign for the BWRC's x-ray equipment. We will now proceed to close the campaign even though it did not fully reach its goal on GoFundMe.
Fortunately we have received a small amount of direct donations which will cover the cost for BWRC's x-ray equipment. We will continue to accept private donations to cover the shipping and importation duties.
Please contact us via email if you would like to support us or find out more about the progress on BWRC's x-ray equipment. Currently we are waiting to hear from our partner in the US who had found the equipment for us. But we hope to complete purchase, shipping and importation within the next month or 2.
Once more: THANK YOU to all who shared, cared and donated! We could not do what we do for injured, orphaned or imperilled wildlife without your amazing support!
Best Regards
Dr. Isabelle (Founder and Director of Belize Wildlife & Referral Clinic)

Every bit counts and here another patient who gets to benefit from x-ray: Clifford the Howler Monkey baby with severe hand injury.
Please help us to complete this campaign: donate and share with everybody you know.
Thanks to you we are at 66 % and only 2900$ away from reaching our goal (there are about 1000$ in offline donations).
Next BWRC is in urgent need of moving location (and needs to create another campaign for that asap) but we do not want to loose this opportunity and hope you can help. If every friend of mine gave not even 3 $ or if every friend of the wildlife clinic gave $1, BWRC could purchase the digital x-ray machine and never have to deal with failing processors and dirty chemicals again.
In hope for your help once more - we have only gotten this far thanks to YOU!

Dear Friends and Supporters
Please help us to close out this campaign so that we can focus on the next needed campaign - to move the wildlife clinic into a new building. We really hope to upgrade the x-ray to digital instead of buying another chemical processor and we only need a little less than 3000 US more to do so (we have about 1000 US in offline donations that do not show on this campaign). In the meantime we are working on sketching the next clinic and hope for your continued support. We couldn't do without You. Please don't give up and Thank You for taking us this far!

We are nearly there but we still need your help and most times to busy to ask for it. Please check out our website or Facebook page for more information on the clinics work. Aside our needed equipment repairs and upgrades we have to continue to raise funds asap since we have to move to a new location and build a clinic. But one thing at a time: Please help BWRC to complete our x-ray repair funding campaign by donating and sharing. We could not succeed without your support - Thank You!
