Assistance Pouring in for Survivors

The response to the devastating fire has been fast as residents come together at this difficult time. The Town Council, Belize Red Cross San Pedro Branch and NEMO have all teamed up to assist the surviving fire victims. Four persons were killed, two injured and six others displaced when the structures they called home were gutted by the blaze. A joint release states that UNICEF will be providing psychosocial support to the affected families and students from the San Pedro R. C. School and the San Pedro High School where Mia and Allan Nunez attended. The San Pedro Town Council will conduct an immediate clean up of the affected area. NEMO will ensure that those affected will have access to needs and housing and the Food Bank at Hope Haven is providing sustenance. As it relates to the Belize Red Cross, the San Pedro Branch will be hosting a radiothon and dollar drive on June fifteenth starting at seven in the morning.  Residents who wish to donate are asked to do so at account number: 67-014-016-101-012-0001, or drop off their donation at the Reef Radio studio.
