Belize Territorial Volunteers receives donation to assist in border clearing

Wil Maheia and his Belize Territorial Volunteers will be travelling to the border on Saturday and Sunday and say they intend to clear several miles of it. The group intends to start in Dolores, and plan to chop right along the border markers. Today News Five spoke to Maheia who told us that they have been sending out small groups on reconnaissance missions to locate the border markers. The group has formally requested that the BDF and the Organization of American States to act as observers, but Maheia told us that they have received no response to that invitation. So there will likely be no official assistance for this small group, but there is help, and it is from an unexpected source – that is, Belizeans in the US. The group has received a donation of durable clothing, camouflage and heavy duty boots, which was handed over by Alix Dillett, a Belizean living in the US. That equipment will come in handy, since Maheia confirmed to us that the area that they will clear will be challenging for the more than one hundred persons who have signed on for the expedition. Maheia is sending out an invitation for the expedition this weekend, and if you do want to join, you can call him direct at telephone six ten zero nine seven eight.

    In my eyes these men are heroes nothing less you deserve to be paid if gang members can be paid by this useless corrupt pm and gov you the heroes of this country surely deserve to be paid but you will not get any help because you are not black.

    What do they need Camo for? They arent soliders, they are not going on secret mission. They are on Belizean Soil, Camo are anything but cool in the sun. Good intentions but wrong materials. Send them water bottles, hats, matchetes, those backpacks with water bladders in them, the boots work i suppose, but no Camo, it would just make matters worst, if they encounter Guatemalan soliders and are mistaken for military.

    What a complete waste of time and human resources, not to add the friction it can cause with Guatemala. Oh and I for one do not approve so they are acting on my behalf without my permission.
