I noticed there is a school for the deaf in the San Ignacio area. I have two pair of hearing aids I would like to donate. Can I just mail them to the school? How do I find the address? Any help would be appreciated.
If there is anyone in the North Dallas, TX area headed that way, I could pass them off to you. It would be nice to know they are being useful to someone.
Any other ideas on how best to donate these? Thanks!

Well, you noticed the school for the deaf..Great. Do what you are asking others to do for you and contact the school. I could google that, and so can you. Yes the school does exist and could use your donation.

Okay, well to be clear, I saw a roadsign in a picture on a blog, so not much to go on there. Thanks. I'll try google.

Cayo Deaf Institute in San Ignacio http://www.cdi-belize.net/

Located in the Baking Pot region, near Cayo, Belize, in Central America, is an unusual ministry dedicated to teaching and training Deaf people. CDI provides a free education to Deaf children from all across Belize. Volunteer and staff teach all levels of classes to Deaf students. Many of the students arrive at CDI with no knowledge of Sign Language. Some are not aware that communication is even possible.


Another option, klcman's answer in post about schools for deaf in Belize.

Thanks for the additional information. I did email Joy at Stella Maris. I'd be happy to report back when I am able to work out the logistics of donating hearing aids. We are planning to visit Belize again, so maybe bringing them with me is the best way.

No response, so I suppose the need is not as great as I anticipated. I'll probably find somewhere to donate here in the states. Thank you for all the help.
