By BBN Staff: The Ministry of Human Development, Families, and Indigenous Peoples’ Affairs continues to share its accomplishments achieved during their first 100 days in office.
The Ministry says that it has continued the strengthening of coordination and collaboration with other social sector ministries including the Ministry of Health and Wellness, Ministry of Rural Transformation, Community Development, Labour and Local Government, Ministry of Finance, Economic Development and Investment, and the Ministry of Home Affairs and New Growth Industries for improved service delivery to the vulnerable populations.
The Ministry also provided support to the Ministry of Health and Wellness with logistics for more than 700 food assistance baskets to COVID-19 quarantine patients.
The Ministry emphasized that there is no place for exclusion and has since met with representatives of the LGBT community (UNIBAM, PETAL, and Our Circle).
A team has been established including the appointment and efforts of the Special Envoy for the Development of Families and Children, to give emphasis to the upliftment of families.
The ministry has focused new impetus and energy on the board of the National Women’s Commission, including several committed men.
The Ministry says that it is currently in the process of revitalizing the National Council on Ageing to foster greater inclusion, participation, and respect for older persons in our communities.
The Ministry has also committed to putting in place a Desk for Disabilities staffed by a disabilities officer.
In addition, it has commenced infrastructural improvement and programmatic strengthening at the Youth Hostel to support the rehabilitation of the residents.
The Ministry will also coordinate with the Attorney General’s Ministry to revamp the legislation governing the Youth Hostel to make it more child-friendly and to take a child protection approach.
The planning sessions have begun for the development of a strategic plan for the Ministry of Human Development, Families, and Indigenous Peoples’ Affairs.
The Ministry emphasizes its commitment to the social development of the people of Belize.
