San Pedro responds to the call for help

Two San Pedro Town residents were in need of assistance; the island heard their call and came out in full support. Gonzalo “Reds” Lara was in need of financial assistance after he and his family lost everything in a blaze that consumed two wooden structures completely. While Annie Rivero, critically ill, was in need of blood donations.

On March 16th, Reds’ family homes were totally lost in a fire that ravaged everything. On Wednesday, the San Pedro Lions Club held a tele-radiothon to raise much needed funds. Garnered through the kind donations of the island residents and some visitors, that day was productive with close to $42,000 raised. On Sunday, two local bands offered their free music while the San Pedro distributors’ staff brought in the beer and sodas and handles the bar. All proceeds of those sales went to the family. Combined with the food and dessert sale, the day’s earned the family close to $8,000. Through the kind donations of food, desserts, drinks and money, it is the hopes of the San Pedro Lions Club that the money will be used to build a two story concrete structure which will be the venue for much Lara family memories.

The second person who benefitted from the community’s generosity was Annie Rivero, wife of Julian Rivero, owners of CSM2000, has fallen critically ill and was in serious need of blood. A blood drive was held on Monday, March 23rd at the Fairdale Plaza were many turned out to help Annie build up her blood “credits”. All blood types were accepted, these will go to the blood bank and Annie received the blood she desperately needed.

The Belize Blood Bank was on the island were their goal was to collect at least 12 units of blood. However, the day garnered 22 units of blood today. Assisting for the day was Nurse Natalie Palen who commented, “Very well done, everyone involved. Amazing how much can be achieved when everyone contributes, even in a small way, to pull a really big thing (saving lives) together.”

She gets dialysis still and is trying to get her red blood cells high enough to get a transplant.

I would also add that fundraising is still going on for anyone who can give. You can drop the money at Julian's office. The treatments are $800 each 3 days a week and are needed to sustain Annie's life while she waits for a kidney.

Fundraiser for Annie Rivero

Annie Rivero, married to Julian of CSM 2000 the computer shop on Pescador Drive (Middle Street) has been extremely sick. She is currently having regular dialysis and is in need of constant and costly medical treatment. San Pedro has a wonderful community and they sure know how to rally round when one of their members is in desperate need of assistance. This was shown when so many turned up for the blood drive held recently to give blood to assist with Annie’s care.

On Saturday the 25th (Saturday), starting at 10:00am, there will be a big Food Sale in Central Park in front of the church. There will be plenty of great food and all funds raised will go to help Annie meet her ever growing medical bills. Even if you cannot attend yourself, please tell everyone you know (particularly if they are hungry).
