B.T.L. Donates $96,000 to Red Cross for Relief Efforts in Guatemala

Earlier this month, the Belize Red Cross launched its appeal for financial donations to assist victims of Volcan del Fuego that caused the unfortunate loss of life of over a hundred persons in Guatemala as well as tremendous destruction to property. That appeal has been growing and today got a huge boost from Belize Telemedia Limited. A cheque of ninety-six thousand dollars was handed over today by Telemedia’s C.E.O. Rochus Schreiber to Executive Director Lily Bowman.

“The original idea for this event came from in the gap, a very charitable organization that has been working for the betterment of Belize and has been working closely with us on other initiatives, for which we are very grateful. We are grateful for the fact that they trust us; that they bring inspiration to our organization and they bring a different perspective to our otherwise corporate thinking. So with that, I don’t want to keep these remarks long, but I want to say thank you very much. I think the outpouring of help that we see speaks for itself. We hope that this money will be used to help our neighbours in a time of need.”
