New home for abused children

Story Picture
Since 1997, Marla’s House of Hope for abused children has been operating from a rent-free building, made possible through Help for Progress. But today opening ceremonies were held in Belmopan for the organisation’s move into its own new and improved building. Land for the structure was donated by the Belmopan City Council, while funding came from the British High Commission, Belize Water Services, the Government of Belize and other donors. Guest speakers at the ceremony included Mayor Chanona and Sonia Warner of the British High Commission’s office. Marla’s House of Hope provides protection for children victims of child abuse.
