By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Ministry of Infrastructure Development and Housing last Thursday presented a starter home to Ms. Margaret McDougal in Belize City.
“What we are doing is changing lives, one at a time. That is what is special about this project, the changing of individual lives,” said MIDH Minister Julius Espat.
“You now, Mom, have a house, a shelter above your head, that you have no worries about. And that is what we want, to make sure that people who have the need have access to something that they can hold to their heart, something that they can take to the bank, something that you can use to better and empower your life.”
Minister Espat said that is the philosophy of the Right Honourable George Cadle Price.
“That’s why we are here, because he laid the foundation for us to be able to do this kind of activity.”
“I think it’s an exciting day for Miss Margaret,” said Minister of the Public Service Henry Charles Usher, nephew of the late Prime Minister Price, at the handing over ceremony.
“Unfortunately, a few months ago her house fell, and this was one of the first homes that the Ministry decided to help out with. And today is a very happy day for her. It’s a happy day for the Government to see that our Plan Belize initiative of building homes, of building houses, is coming to fruition.”
The following day the MIDH presented six new homes to residents of the Cayo District in Benque Viejo del Carmen, Salvapan, and St Matthews.
“Every single one of these homes make a real, immediate and positive impact on the lives of the recipients, and that is all the thanks we’ll ever need,” said the MIDH.
