By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Officers from the Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security, and Enterprise (MAFSE) are today joining the Belize City Council work crews to clean-up the country’s old capital which was hit by Hurricane Lisa on November 2.
“Approximately 26 people are attending. They are from the district of Orange Walk, Corozal, Belize, and Cayo, both from Belmopan and Central Farm,” said MAFSE Communications Director Luis Pook.
“They are all officers from the Agriculture Ministry. The Belize City Council has a rotating schedule and today they’ll be in Collet and Port Loyola working.
“We don’t have heavy machinery, but our staff took along machetes, chainsaws, and rakes,” Pook said.
“The Sanitation people from the Belize City Council are supervising and directing where exactly they go. They are going to be clearing up debris, especially trees, loading up of branches and that type of thing, which we have a relative amount of practice with as the Ministry of Agriculture.”
Pook said that MAFSE is joining other Ministries that are also participating in the cleanup. Pook said the MAFSE officers will be in Belize City all day, just like the sugar cane farmers that Agriculture Minister Jose Abelardo Mai brought in last week Wednesday.
