JUAN CAAL Reporting: A group of women is heading to the Belize-Guatemala border on Saturday morning.
The trip to Belize’s southern border on Saturday morning is to plant coconut trees.
The trip is an initiative by the People’s National Party under the leadership of Wil Maheia and the Belize Territorial Volunteers.
According to Maheia the coconut planting trip is part of activities to kick off Women’s Month and “to build more awareness in protecting our borderline.”
Organizers of Saturday’s trip are hoping that the coconut trees will, in the future, serve to point out exactly where Belize’s border with Guatemala lies.
Free transportation is being provided for the women who will be going to the border on Saturday, March 1 to plant coconut trees.
