Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Santa Rosa, Belize - Apr 14, 2017 - Belize now has its first Honorary Humanitarian Ambassador. The title was bestowed on American/Belizean Dr. Paul Whisnant. Dr. Paul, as he is fondly known, has been serving Belize as a Missionary for the past 27 years doing humanitarian work.
On Sunday, March 12th, 2017, along with becoming the Honorary Humanitarian Ambassador of Belize, Dr. Paul was also given the country’s Lifetime Humanitarian Award. Both were presented on behalf of the Government and People of Belize by Senator, Ashley Rocke.
From his early days as a Missionary humbly living in a leaf and stick hut, to the present day as the founder and leader of one of the largest and most well respected Christian Missions in Belize, I’ve seen how Dr. Paul Whisnant has faithfully served thousands of needy children and families.
