A project that will upgrade the Maskall Village Community Centre was officially launched today.

Maria Novelo reporting....

“Groundbreaking for the launch of the rehabilitation project of the Maskall Community Center was done this morning. The project is estimated at $176,000.00 which is a joint venture with the Government of Belize and Social Investment Fund. Area Representative for Belize Rural North Edmund Castro says the center will be retrofitted with four unit bathroom facility, kitchen area and improvement made to the roofing, walls, windows and doors. It is estimated that the project will be completed in four months and will benefit over 1,000 residents of Maskall and neighbouring villages. Residents say it is a long awaited endeavour and look forward to helping with the labour to get the project completed. While the community building will bring a sense of pride it will equally serve to provide security in times of disaster.”

Maskall Will Get A Hurricane Shelter

Maskall village's over 1,200 residents will have their own hurricane shelter. Ground was broken yesterday for the project to upgrade the Village Community Centre into a full hurricane shelter.

Area Representative Edmund Castrol told us why it is important:…

Edmund Castrol, Area Rep
"For Maskall to not had had a proper hurricane shelter or a proper community building for recreational purpose - it was a shame. Also what we experience every year we get almost either hurricane or threat from hurricane or from flood and so what happen in the past we receive a lot of people that were coming from San Pedro and Caye Caulker but they is no proper hurricane shelter in this community although it is this size. So this building will serve a multitude many different purposes for the villagers not just in Maskall but villagers in the diaspora."

The existing zinc roof will be replaced with a concrete slab and the foundation will be strengthened among other things. The project will be financed by the Government of Belize at a total cost of $176,000 under the Commonwealth Debt Initiative. The community of Maskall will contribute labour towards the project.
