A Good Samaritan on a mission to assist women affected by violence

Rayford Benguche, a Belize City resident turned Good Samaritan, is on a mission to assist women who are experiencing hardships because their loved ones have been caught in the vicious cycle of violence. Benguche’s initiative was prompted by a personal experience last Monday when a close friend was sentenced on the day his child was born. The mother of his child is without a job and has no means to take care of the newborn. So with the help from Twin Supermarket and Lyndon Bailey of Tubal Trade and Vocational Institute, Benguche handed over food hampers containing basic baby products to the needy families. He used the opportunity to make an appeal to businesses and the government to assist in the drive.

“First of all, I love children and a friend of

Rayford Benguche

mine got really affected by it. He went to jail the same day, I think it was last week Monday, he was sentenced to two years in prison and on that very day, his first-born born. He hasn’t seen his child as yet and his mother don’t even have a job. So these are the parents who have been affected on a day to day basis. I am appealing to all the business community, the schools could probably have a dollar day, come together and buy up their necessities and say they are presenting this from Queen Square or Holy Redeemer. The business community; I know that most people have a heart. so I am asking even the government. I woulda want to put these said mothers on the pantry list so that they can help themselves. I will help these said mothers until they get back on their feet. We are trying to get scholarships for these mothers to go and study at Tubal Trade School and try and locate job. I also want to ask the public that anybody who have wah job—yo want yo office clean, if yo need some clothes wash, whatever the case might be, a secretarial work—give me a call and I could link dehn young lady with a job. The bottom line is the kids; my main focus is the kids. The next young lady, her boyfriend died and left a four month old baby and she don’t even have a job as well. So I am appeal to everyone, anyone who can help.”

 

Anyone who would like to assist with the cause can call Benguche at 605-2635 or can make financial deposits at Saint John’s Credit Union Account number 18522.
