Try e-mailing Patty Arceo - pattyarceo@btl.net She is handling getting hurricane donations in duty free on a case by case basis. Likely you will have to pay duty, but this would be who would know. Let us know what she says.

Our info is that all items being shipped to Belize as Relief Supplies will be put under the control of NEMA at the time of arrival.

NEMO would decide where the materials go.

If you wish to send in equipment and supplies
for your oun personal use you can do so but they would be treated as any other imported materials. You would be liable for duties and taxes but you can do it.

Wingbridge Shipping can ship down anything you want. It does not have to be a full container load.

It is necessary to contact Niko at Wingbridge prior to bringing materials to their dock to get a booking number.

They can accept personal shipments from Houston or Mobile and the sail every two weeks.

The next sailing from Houston is 10/24 and Mobile 10/27.

Hope this helps.
