New group to unite Belizeans at home and abroad

Posted: Tuesday, July 25, 2017. 4:10 pm CST.

By BBN Staff: Belizeans United For Equal Rights at Home and the Diaspora (BUFERHD), a newly created group which aims to bridge the divide between Belizeans at home and in the diaspora, was officially launched last Thursday in Ladyville, according to Channel 5 News.

BUFERHD President, Derek Aikman, says the goal of the organization is to establish an equal playing field for all Belizeans while lobbying for equal access to education, employment, health care, housing, land distribution, and economic opportunities.

The group launched last Thursday with the help of Jamaican Bishop, Dr. Peter Morgan, who made a presentation on the diaspora movement. Morgan, who represents the International Third World Leaders Association, said that across the globe, diaspora communities are playing a key an integral role in the development of their respective nations and is hopeful the same can be done here in Belize.

Morgan said he hopes to be able to travel back to Jamaica and point to Belize as the prototype for bridging the gap between Caribbean nations and the diaspora.
