Two New Ambulances and Support Trucks from Belize Heroes N.G.O. to G.O.B.

The second of two U.S. Air Force flights that were scheduled to transport emergency response vehicles to Belize in July, arrived today carrying two ambulances, two support trucks, and medical supplies. The donation was made possible through a U.S. government funded Central America Regional Security Initiative Economic Support Fund grant. The fund was established to improve accessibility and effectiveness of government services. In 2021, the non-profit Belize Heroes was awarded two hundred and fifty thousand U.S. dollars, through the fund, for the enhancement of medical services in the Cayo District.  Minister of Disaster Risk Management Orlando Habet was on hand to receive the donation. Minister Habet noted that quote, providing immediate and effective life-saving care in a safe and clinical working environment with maximum mobility is extremely important in our society, end quote. Roberto Riverol, the Emergency Medical Services Project Liaison Officer for the Belize Heroes added “Belize Heroes believes that pre-hospital Emergency Medical Services is a basic human right and should be accessible to all who needs it, regardless of their socioeconomic status; and we continue to work toward achieving that”. To date, the United States has provided over nine million U.S. dollars in grant funding through the CARSI’s Economic Support Fund in Belize.
