Thursday, November 6, 2014. AARON HUMES Reporting: On Wednesday the Thomas family of Victoria Street relocated to their new home on Jane Usher Boulevard.
The $35,000 22-by-30 structure was donated by the Rotary Club of Belize.
Katherine Thomas is 36 years old, wheelchair-bound and a mother of 4 including a son with cerebral palsy.
Ms. Thomas’ old home was an abandoned shack where she was living without permission.
Her story moved the Rotary Club to assist her in getting a new home and finance was provided by partners in Canada, with labour from prisoners at the Central Prison at Hattieville.
The two-bedroom home is equipped with utilities, new beds for Thomas’ teenage sons, kitchen appliances and utensils.
They will move in on Friday.
