By BBN Staff: In the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian, the Category 5 storm that caused catastrophic devastation in the Bahamas over the weekend, the Government of Belize (GOB) has joined the regional efforts to send relief aid.

GOB announced yesterday that Cabinet approved some $200,000 to send for relief assistance along with human resource deployments to assist with work of getting the country up and running. GOB coordinated with Belize Electricity Limited and the Belize Defense Force, who are ready to deploy personnel to the Bahamas as the country tries to emerge from the devastation of the storm.

“The Government encourages all Belizeans who wish to offer assistance to the people of The Bahamas to do so through local relief initiatives being undertaken by reliable agencies, businesses, or organizations,” GOB said. “Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims of this catastrophic storm who may have lost loved ones and who have had their homes and properties destroyed.”

Hurricane Dorian is currently on a collision course with North and South Carolina in the United States after just brushing past the Florida Coast. The storm is still incredibly powerful and people are being asked to evacuate areas along the projected path of impact.
