Relief
NEMO is conducting relief efforts in Sittee River, Gales Point and Mullins River in the southern part of Belize.  Social Workers were air lifted along with the first wave of relief supplies since yesterday.  Supplementary supplies are currently going into these areas.
In the north, the Relief supplies Committee are working in the San Roman, Santa Cruz and San Antonio communities.  Supplies are boated into these areas since the communities are cut off due to flooding over the road.
Supplies have also been sent to Douglas and Carmelita.
Currently efforts are underway for the repositioning of relief stocks at the three NEMO warehouses, Ladyville, Belmopan and Independence in anticipation of continued flooding.
NEMO is asking members of the public who are willing to donate children clothing for ages birth to thirteen, household items, mattresses and toiletries to take their donation to the nearest Red Cross Station.
NEMO commits to keeping the nation inform of further developments and improvements as the work continues to normalize the lives of all those affected by the flooding.
