AARON HUMES Reporting: The Inspiration Center, intended to be an integrated, community based program for disabled and disadvantaged children and adolescents from especially poor areas of Belize, opened its doors in grand style today.

After a year and few months of fundraising and then construction, Special Envoy for Women and Children Kim Simplis Barrow told this morning’s audience that the real work now begins, of making it into a true home.

She says the Center is intent on fostering development of Belize’s “differently abled” community and other Belizeans’ respect of them.

Two Inspiration Telethons in 2012 and 2013 raised some $1.5 million, much of which was donated by the Government of Belize.

The single largest donor was the Government of the Republic of China (Taiwan) with $400,000 including equipment.
