By Zoila Palma: NEMO equipment is in Sarawee Village in rural Stann Creek District carrying out flood mitigation works. Sarawee is one of the communities most affected by seasonal flooding.

Area Representative Frank Mena says that he is thankful for the assistance from NEMO in this respect.

In a press release issued just now, Minister of Transport and National Emergency Management, Edmond Castro stated that his Ministry and NEMO are placing a high priority on drainage as a means of reducing the impact of flooding nationwide.

Castro said that going forward they intend to seek international assistance in obtaining more equipment to increase the flood mitigation works particularly during the dry season.

The works currently being carried out in Sarawee are being supervised by NEMO Southern Regional Coordinator Keith Emmanuel, and NEMO Stann Creek District Coordinator David Cruz, in coordination with the Ministry of Works represented by Engineer Tristan Usher.

Assisting on the ground in identifying key areas to be addressed are Village Chairman Derrington Ramirez and Villager Alden McLaughlin.

Similar woks have recently been carried out in other villages in the Stann Creek District, such as Red Bank and San Juan/Cowpen, and previously in communities throughout Rural Belize District, Corozal, Cayo and Toledo.
