Faber says most of flood relief funds available

By Aaron Humes: UDP leader Patrick Faber says he would be surprised if a significant portion of the $10 million available for relief from the recent funds is spent before tomorrow’s general election as time would not have permitted this.

Even while Saturday’s press conference was going on, he said, assessments of damage were ongoing and continue apace and so the barest minimum of funds for immediate relief to those displaced was spent.

And much more will be needed, Faber predicts, especially in the area of agriculture. He cites the damage recorded to crops in the area of Valley of Peace, Cayo District, and elsewhere. Notably there was significant damage to rice that was not yet harvested and commercial corn that had just been planted along the Belize River mostly by the Mennonites in Spanish Lookout.
