Wednesday, October 21, 2015. BMG: Belize Bank Limited recently donated $2,000 to the not-for-profit organization, Crime Stoppers, which works with youth and fights against crime in Belize City.
That money was used to transport 150 at risk youth to Cucumber Beach and provide food and drinks, prizes, pay lifeguards, police and medical personnel, for a “Day on the Beach”.
At the beach, the Crime Stopper programme was introduced to the youth, after which they engaged in games and swam while promoting good sportsmanship and interacting respectfully with others.
A release from Belize Bank stated that it is proud to have engaged youth in a safe and meaningful activity which will foster and develop them with the necessary skills to contribute positively in the community.
