By BBN Staff: Yesterday, NEMO Minister Edmond Castro was in the villages of Burrell Boom and Sandhill handing over more houses to victims of Hurricane Earl in those villages.
Castro was accompanied by NEMO Regional Coordinator for Cayo and Belize Districts Al Westby, as well as NEMO Coordinator for Belize Rural North Alphius Gillett.
Last week, he similarly handed over houses to residents in the village of Crooked Tree.
Castro will be back in Crooked Tree tomorrow to receive a sturdy, newly constructed building in that village from the United States Embassy. It will serve as a spacious, well-outfitted hurricane shelter for the area.
Over the past two months, Castro as Minister of National Emergency Management also received from the United States Embassy two buildings in Toledo, one being an Emergency Operations Center, the other a Disaster Relief Warehouse; and one in Orange Walk, an Emergency Operations Center.
The buildings were all constructed by the United States (Army) Southern Command (USSOUTHCOM).
