The state-owned water company also gave a check for 5 thousand dollars today to the National Sports Council to assist with expenses for the upcoming CODICADER primary school games being hosted by Belize from July 6 to 11.

CEO of BWS Alvan Haynes said that the RESTORE Belize partnership flows out of BWS’ own prior efforts with in-house assistance to children of staff members

Director of the National Sports Council Ritchel Dominguez revealed that Belize could have been sanctioned for not hosting the Under-11 games; instead, it has become a reward for Belize’s student-athletes and their visitors.

Games of football, basketball, volleyball and table tennis will be played.
