…Injured child recovering

Anthony Edwards

We asked Justina about the condition of her baby boy, who was also injured in the accident. And while Anthony was not in the best condition to speak, he told us how he is doing.

The blood can be donated in the name of Anthony Edwards at the blood banks in Belize City or Punta Gorda.
