Humana Hooks Up with NEMO for Toledo Emergencies

Edmond ‘Clear the Land’ Castro

A number of projects are being undertaken in eleven villages within the Toledo District through Humana People to People Belize.  Those initiatives include the improvements of physical infrastructure, as well as early warning systems for reduced risk to natural hazards.  Touring the projects was NEMO Minister Edmond ‘Clear the Land’ Castro.  He shared his impression of the work following the visit.

 

Edmond ‘Clear the Land’ Castro, NEMO Minister

“I am very impressed with the Humana group, went on tour to about eleven villages yesterday, mainly Santa Teresa which has a tower and we are dealing with the river monitors and the communications system for the five villages in that area which will enhance NEMO’s ability in terms of communication and also the early warning and monitoring systems.  So it’s a collaboration between Humana and NEMO and I think that we like this type of arrangement and we welcome the Humana people who are in conjunction working and getting funding through the Caribbean Development Bank.  So I think we are right on track and I was glad to be invited and be a part of this tour yesterday.  The facility in Blue Creek, they are renovating the Blue Creek Community Center for us which will also be a part of the NEMO hurricane shelter system in the Blue Creek area whereby they are adding on bathrooms and putting the proper doors and windows to the community center there for the people of Blue Creek.”
