1000 Relief Supplies Packages to be Made Available

Dolores Balderamos-Garcia

Today, News Five caught up with Belize Rural Central Area Representative Dolores Balderamos-Garcia as she canvassed her constituency looking at the damage on the ground. She contends that her division was just as severely impacted as Belize City, particularly the Vista del Mar community and Lord’s Bank Village. The Minister of Human Development told News Five that her ministry is already making available one thousand food packages as an initial step to assist those that have been affected. But even as the assessment of damages is still ongoing, there are so many that have been affected. 

 

Dolores Balderamos-Garcia, Minister of Human Development

“We are responsible for the relief supplies management operations which basically is your food and your supplies that go to shelters, but also to the general public. So we will be having a cabinet meeting at two with some of our technical people – my C.E.O. is coming in from Belmopan – and we do intend to get out an initial amount of maybe about a thousand packages right now. That doesn’t mean that if your situation isn’t caught within that thousand you won’t get attention. You will get attention, but allow us to make the assessments of the needs. What we want to say to the Belizean people is that already, not only NEMO, but also our Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Human Development, everybody involved is making what we call the initial assessment. It is going to be in the millions, but we want the Belizean people to know that government will be on it; we won’t be sleeping right now and we will make sure we give the response that is needed at this time. Central Belize country has been most affected.”
