Belize Kriol Project Calendar for 2010

Story PictureThe Belize Kriol Project has introduced its 2010 calendar and this year it features remedies called “Ting Fi Mek Wi Geh Betta”. It contains traditional remedies, an index of Kriol terms and special events. Each month is dedicated to a particular ailment and its remedy. Secretary of the Kriol Projek, Sylvaana Udz says it is a must-buy.
