Community Leaders from Around the Country Assist in Belize City CleanUp Campaign
A massive cleanup campaign in Belize City post-Hurricane Lisa took place over the weekend. On Friday, the City Emergency Management Organization (CEMO), supported by NEMO, kicked off the largest single contingent from the Belize Defence Force ever deployed on one task. The Ministry of Infrastructure Development and Housing (MIDH), supported by the private sector, is providing pro bono work with dump trucks and backhoes, and a massive 72-hour clean-up campaign. Area representatives, and municipal and village leaders from across the country came to Belize City to help in the restoration efforts. Giovanna Moguel reports.
