By Aaron Humes: Belize-based staff from the World Bank on Wednesday took a walk through the Old Capital’s “wild side” – various vulnerable communities in Belize City.
The Bank’s country manager Federico Baechli and regional security specialist Keisha Gebre were joined by Dr. Richard Rosado, Deputy Commissioner of Police; Government Information Consultant Geovannie Brackett and various community leaders along with staff from the Behaviour Modification Centre.
The areas visited were the Lake Independence community, the Extension area, and the Krooman Community. The group had a frank and open discussion with the community members to discuss the causes and consequences of living in vulnerable communities and what their vision is for the area.
The main goal of the visit was to gather data for the official visit by the World Bank delegation scheduled for next Monday, February 20, 2023.
