By Benjamin Flowers: The Government of Belize has made a contribution of BZ$200,000 to the Government and people of Haiti through the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA) to support humanitarian efforts being conducted there after being struck by consecutive natural disasters.
GOB recounted that Haiti had been struck by an earthquake on August 14, which reportedly killed 2,189 people and injured 12,268 more, and then got struck by Tropical Storm Grace, which made landfall on August 17
“Dozens remain missing, which is likely to further raise the death toll. An estimated 30,000 families in Haiti have been left homeless; more than 7,000 homes and residential buildings have been destroyed, while 12,000 have suffered damage. The total costs of the infrastructural devastation have yet to be ascertained. The Haitian people are experiencing an extraordinarily difficult moment in the life of their nation,” GOB said.
Government also said that Haiti is also simultaneously grappling with political flux, insecurity, an ongoing humanitarian crisis, and the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. GOB stresses that the donation is an expression of the solidarity of the Government and people of Belize.
