This morning, the Special Envoy for Women and Children, Mrs. Kim Simplis Barrow, hosted a virtual event which was streamed live by various media houses including Wave FM, Love Fm, 7 News Belize and the Government of Belize Press Office.

During the live event, Mrs. Simplis Barrow announced the closure of her Office marking the end of 12 years of public service as Belize’s Special Envoy for Women and Children.

"It has been a great honor and privilege to have been afforded such a unique platform from which to advocate on behalf of Belizeans whose voices were not being heard. The journey has been challenging, but the experience has been rewarding and enriching in expected and unexpected ways," Mrs. Simplis Barrow stated.

Among her many notable accomplishments, Mrs. Simplis Barrow is particularly proud to have been the driving force behind the construction of Belize's only center for children with disabilities, The Inspiration Center, and the Neonatal and Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU/NICU) at the Karl Heusner Memorial hospital (KHMH).

In addition to these two major projects, through her Office, Mrs. Simplis Barrow has also carried out numerous projects and initiatives including the 20,000 STRONG Women's Empowerment Campaign, the My Body is Precious: Good Touch, Bad Touch Child Empowerment Campaign, the Launch of 16 Days of Activism against Gender-based Violence Campaign and the Launch of Little Free Libraries, just to name a few.

See retrospective video below which further highlights the work of the Special Envoy for Women and Children.
