I understand that NEMO is not allowing manpower nor supplies for rebuilding any areas except San pedrito. Is this true? Is there something here that I am not aware of? My sister and her husband are trying to rebuild their home that was badly damaged and aren't even able to obtain supplies. There were 50 workers on the mainland prepared to come out and rebuild homes but they weren't allowed to come because of NEMO. What gives with this? How can we get some supplies out to the island? Please help with the correct information. Thanks in advance.

not so... the only thing nemo is not allowing into the island are women and kids... or people that do not have work.. they are picking up everyone that is walking around and putting them up to the cleanup campaign...

Perhaps it is because of the looting situation? I have also heard that the government is restricting Belizeans from coming out because of the looting. Perhaps there is some confusion about the reason? I really am trying to maintain a positive attitude and I really appreciate everything that everyone has done to help.
