On December 2, 2020, H.E. Remus Li-Kuo Chen, Ambassador of the Republic of China (Taiwan) to Belize, presented a grant in the sum of US$100,000 to assist Belize in the repair of flood damage caused by the passage of Hurricanes Eta and Iota. The donation was received by Hon. Christopher Coye, Minister of State in the Ministry of Finance, Economic Development and Investment.

In presenting the donation, Ambassador Chen said that his government was pleased to be in a position to assist its long-standing and highly valued friend, Belize, in a time of need and conveyed continued support for the development of Belize.

Minister Coye thanked the Ambassador for the generous and timely donation and gave assurances that the funds would be put to good use in the emergency repair of infrastructure impacted by the floods.

The U.S. government was proud to deliver to NEMO on Tuesday nearly U.S. $19,000 in emergency supplies to assist Belize with its disaster response capabilities. The dontated supplies included first aid kits, emergency lights and hygiene kits.

Over the past six months, U.S. government donations have been used to assist over 400 Belizean families impacted by this year’s hurricanes. Whether we face natural disaster or global pandemic, we are committed to helping our Belizean friends and neighbors through the multiple crises of this past year.

In today’s handover ceremony at the San Ignacio Town Council, the U.S. government through our implementing partner UNICEF will deliver emergency aid kits to the National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) and the Belize Red Cross as emergency first responders.

The U.S. Government, through the U.S. Embassy and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), has been supporting the work of UNICEF to reduce the risk and impact of COVID-19 for vulnerable children and adolescents in Belize. The project received funding of U.S. $300,000 to support a comprehensive response to the critical needs to reduce the risk of increased COVID-19 cases among the most vulnerable children and families.

As a part of the ongoing project 354 families from the areas most severely affected by Hurricane Eta in the Cayo district will benefit from the provision of emergency hygiene and nutrition kits. The kits will contain critical hygiene supplies for a family of five, and it will also include a nutrition hamper with supplemented food. Educational materials on hygiene and nutrition are included in the kits as well.

U.S. Government coordinates with UNICEF Belize, National Emergency Management Organization and Belize Red Cross on joint emergency response to COVID-19 and Hurricane Eta

Belmopan, Cayo – In a ceremony today at the San Ignacio Town Council Hall, U.S. Embassy Belmopan and its implementing partner UNICEF handed over emergency response kits to Belize’s National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) and the Belize Red Cross. These kits were purchased through an ongoing $300,000 United States Agency for International Development (USAID) grant to UNICEF launched in August to assist UNICEF in its work to reduce the risk and impact of COVID-19 on vulnerable children and adolescents in Belize. These kits – which include food and hygiene items – will be distributed to 354 families from regions in the Cayo District that were most severely impacted by flooding from Hurricanes Eta and Iota.

During today’s handover ceremony, Chargé d’Affaires, a.i. Keith Gilges emphasized, “The U.S. Embassy is deeply committed to making Belize safer, healthier, more secure and prosperous for all its citizens. In times of crisis such as these, our focus turns to helping those most afflicted. This is what good friends and neighbors do – we are here for one another when it counts.”

The kits, which will be delivered over a three-day period, contain critical hygiene supplies sufficient for a family of five, as well as a nutrition hamper with supplemented food. Educational materials on hygiene and nutrition are included in the kits as well. The project is also in the process of procuring Early Childhood Development kits which will be distributed for families with children under 8 years old.
