By BBN Staff: Today, the British High Commissioner to Belize, Claire Evans was in attendance at the handing over of more than US $271,000 of Personal Protective Equipment for COVID-19 response in Belize.
The donation was made possible with funding from the United Kingdom, Canada and the Pan American Health Organization.
The donation will enable the Ministry of Health to continue to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic in Belize.
“The UK government is committed to supporting our Belizean friends and partners through this global crisis. By all of us working together we can all help save lives, protect vital healthcare systems, reduce the risk of future waves of infection globally and, together, work to help mitigate the wider social and economic impacts of COVID-19. In addition, the UK is, with a multi-million-pound commitment, working towards the development of a possible vaccine,” Evans said.
The British High Commission noted that the United Kingdom donated more than US $169,000 towards this collaborative effort.
