The Belize Assembly for Persons with Diverse Abilities (BAPDA) has honored Carlette Gentle, SCN, with their Point of Light and Community Service Award. The award was granted in recognition of Sister Carlette’s work with senior citizens and persons with disabilities.
“It was acknowledgment that what I am doing is important to the country and those I serve,” Sister Carlette said.
This award was given at a church service at St. John’s Cathedral in Belize City on December 3, to commemorate World Disability Day under the theme “The Importance of Inclusion.”
BAPDA shares, “We do what we do with the help and great assistance from many individuals. We share the names of three outstanding individuals that have been there for BAPDA through 2023 and we must show our appreciation and gratitude to them. Thank God for his guiding hand always, and may we grow as the Nations premier Disability organization well into the next decades.”
