The San Pedro Branch of the Belize Red Cross is looking for people who would like join our team.

To register there is an annual membership fee of BZ$25.00 per year for Volunteers and BZ$100.00 for Contributing Members. This annual fee is used by the Branch for development and execution of community activities. Belize Red Cross has a very minimal financial base and the volunteer and membership fees are designed to help sustain the organization.

The Belize Red Cross has a Headquarters (HQ) in Belize City and 7 Branches throughout the 6 administrative Districts of the country. San Pedro makes the 8th and the newest reactivated Branch

To register or get more information please email tacogirlbelize[at]gmail[dot]com
A few interesting facts about the Belize Red Cross:

The Red Cross has had a presence in Belize since 1914, the Clarion news paper carried out a request for the women of British Honduras to assist in WW1 War effort by knitting and sending warm clothing to the Red Cross in England.

Today the Belize Red Cross does a wide range of programs: including vulnerability and capacity assessments, forming training and equipping community disaster response teams such as first responders, developing community emergency plans, specialized training for volunteers, education of communities in health and disaster preparedness, certifying home care givers, assessing family needs, providing psychological support, teaching and administering first aid, training staff and volunteers, planning with stakeholders, working with schools and training students in preparedness, strategic pre-stocking of relief items and so much more.
