This is an online donation form for donated funds to be sent to Placencia and the surrounding area if folks are interested.
We raised $40,000us that way after Keith. I will hold onto the charge data after input for a few days til I could determine the best way to get it to Placencia.
folks can also send $$ to Red cross noted c/o Belize Hurricane Fund.$17,015 us raised as of 2 pm Belize Time Monday, 97 donations
This money will be sent to Belize untouched by any middlemans cut. We are going to send money down thru Frank Redmond. He is setting up a Barclays account just for these donations. He is out on the front lines today working with the Mennonites to bring relief to hard hit areas.
All funds raised by this list will be channelled through:
The Red Creek Mennonite Church,
Pastor Frank Friesan
Tel 501 92 3722
Goods will be distributed throughout the Punta Gorda area through:
Caribbean Light and Truth
Tel 501 72 2344
The principle behind what we are doing is moving whatever is
purchased free. Labor for house construction will involve the new
owner with groups of Mennonites working as well for free.
Food and clothing will be distributed free.
I will have feedback from Punta Gorda by the weekend on the
suggested use of new funds, suggestions coming from the people of
PG. We are shipping another 3 tons of corn flour tomorrow, along
with other food items and clothes.40 ft container is going.
We currently have committments for the construction of 15 of the
$750 houses. We are waiting to see if this is the type of building
people want in general.
Thanks to all.
