The US Government donates $90,000 to residents impacted by Hurricane Lisa
The US Government has provided ninety-seven thousand US dollars worth of essential items to the National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO). The donation was made possible through the U.S. Embassy to provide critical humanitarian aid to Belizean communities devastated by Hurricane Lisa. Yesterday, on behalf of the American people, Chargé d’Affaires, Leyla Moses-Ones handed over the supplies to NEMO’s Foreign Assistance Committee Ambassador Amalia Mai and the National Coordinator Retired Lieutenant Colonel Shelton Defour. The donation was funded through the U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) Humanitarian Assistance Program and includes hygiene and cleaning supplies, first aid kits, and construction materials to contribute to the repairs of structures damaged during the hurricane. The US Embassy added that the United States stands with Belize to support Hurricane Lisa’s recovery and meet the immediate needs of impacted families.
