Despite Tragedy, Shooting Victims Will Continue with Auto Care Initiative

The United States Embassy, which was instrumental in funding the initiative, has issued a release acknowledging that while it is aware of the tragic incident, it remains committed to supporting its Belizean partners in ensuring safe and secure communities.  Jermaine Garnett, who is also one of the five men injured, has also pledge his commitment to continue with the project.

“I know that it was recently inaugurated with the new Community Hub and during that interview, several persons were interviewed claiming to be past gang members and they are trying to change their lives.  It is very unfortunate that the incident happened there because we believe that these persons are just trying to make a change and likewise trying to assist others to come in and to make a difference in the community and try to change that lifestyle they had been living.  It really saddened the community because we can see that these guys were at least trying to change or assist others in changing.”
