The U.S. Ambassador in Belize made a statement today and stated
that the U.S. government has given $50,000.00 to the Belize Government and
is sending three helicopters to assist and will send more help when the damage is
assessed and they know in what areas they can lend assistance.

Regarding food, you can get in Belize City but if you wish to bring canned
goods since there is no electricity,no water & no phones. Medical supplies
is something you should bring.

Whattaya Say we pester the govt a little and get a few more zeroes on that gift.

Probably they will increase it after the choppers survey, but it can't hurt to try....

Maybe a bigger question - and opportunity. Is the US one of the creditor nations to Belize? If so, how much does Belize owe? How about contacting our congresspersons to provide total debt relief to Belize. As many of you are probably aware, there is a significant worldwide push to forgive debt to third world countries.

If the US is not a creditor nation, perhaps we could still push the world band, UN, or ??? to provide total debt relief to Belize.

Any thoughts on this?
