By Benjamin Flowers: Belize City Mayor Bernard Wagner said today that the Belize City Council has given hundreds of thousands of dollars in relief aid in the wake of Hurricane Lisa.
Wagner gave an update to the press today, noting that the hurricane debris cleanup officially ended on Friday, November 25, with a total of 3,030 loads of debris which amounted to almost 65,000 tons. He said the council is now focusing on humanitarian assistance in collaboration with the National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) and the Government of Belize.
“Based on my figures that I received last night, we have contributed as a city close to $300,000 in terms of relief supplies alone, along with the other repairs,” Wagner said.
He noted that the council has been going into neighborhoods, speaking with residents learning their needs, and have been assisting with food items, zinc roofing, lumber, and other necessities to help families recover from the impacts of the storm.
Hurricane Lisa hit Belize on November 2, causing massive wind and water damage in many areas, and causing lasting disruptions in the lives of many Belizeans.
