noimageBack in the month of August Hurricane Earl made landfall in Belize causing widespread damages across the entire country resulting in hundreds of millions of dollars in losses. Following the aftermath of Earl a number of organizations both locally and internationally joined hands to offer assistance to the victims that were greatly affected by Earl.

Among the list of organizations is the Inter-American Development Bank which took the initiative of organizing four separate events during the months of September and October. As a result of the fundraisers, the IDB managed to obtain a sum of $10,850 US Dollars which was doubled by the IDB. However, given the fact that the fourth and final fundraising event was held after Hurricane Matthew had made its way into Haiti, half of the funds of that particular event which amounted to $1,600 were donated to the victims of Haiti leaving the IDB with a total of $18,500 US dollars.


The remainder of the money will be handed over to four different organizations including the Liberty Children’s Home which will receive $16,000 BZ dollars to cover for the replacement of their Green House as well as for home reparations. The Hand in Hand in Hand Ministries will receive $14,850 BZ dollars which will be used to pay for materials needed to construct one home for a small family. The third organization is the Belize Red Cross which will be given a total of $5,000 BZ dollars for the distribution of two mattresses to fifteen families who are currently receiving assistance from NEMO with the construction of new houses. Finally the Forest and Marine Reserves Association of Caye Caulker will receive $1000 BZ dollars to assist in repairing their office.


The handing over ceremony for Liberty Children’s Home will take place on Saturday December 10th at the office of the Special Envoy for Women and Children at 10:00 a.m. Mrs Kim Simplis Barrow will be accepting the cheque on behalf of the organization.
