The Belize Red Cross is a making a special appeal to aide families affected by the recent floods in communities in the Cayo District and the Belize River Valley.
Some 200 families in these areas are in great need and we ask for monetary donations, canned
food, and toiletries. We are also asking for help with clean clothes for men, women, and boys and girls ages 2 to 14 years old. We ask that ONLY properly laundered clothes be delivered to us. The Belize Red Cross does not have laundry facilities.
Local rivers, their tributaries and lagoons spilled their banks during two weeks of continuous rains caused by tropical depressions that affected Belize. Villagers in some areas have endured up to four feet of water in their neighborhoods.
The Belize Red Cross has begun assessing the needs of communities most affected in these areas.
Both the National Emergency Management Organization and the Belize Red Cross are jointly collaborating in efforts to alleviate the suffering of those families most affected.
The Belize Red Cross urges members of the public to support this appeal and to make contributions at our headquarters #1 Gabourel Lane, Belize City, and at our branches in Corozal, Orange Walk, San Pedro, Belmopan, Dangriga, and Punta Gorda as well as to our account.
The Belize Red Cross Bank Account Number for this local relief effort is:
First Caribbean International Bank #1082665
