By BBN Staff: The People’s United Party (PUP) issued a statement today saying that it joins the Government and people of Belize in expressing their support for the people of the Bahamas who suffered the wrath of catastrophic Hurricane Dorian.
“The footage of the destructive swath of the hurricane, as well as the coverage which revealed the extent of the damage and even deaths, are heart-wrenching, and serves as an eye-opener for us since we, as a country, are well into the hurricane season,” the party states.
The PUP notes that the Belize Red Cross has stepped to the fore, and is organizing a massive drive to collect money, materials and supplies which can assist the many persons affected.
“We urge all Belizeans who can, to reach into their hearts and pockets and help in the name of brotherhood and humanity,” the party expressed.
In addition, the PUP is asking Government to consider an offer to open our country and homes to some families who have been left desolate.
The Bahamas needs urgent assistance and at a time like this, neither our government nor people should stand idly by, when there is the capacity to alleviate, even in some small way, the nightmare in the wake of Hurricane Dorian.
