By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Recently, the Ministry of Rural Transformation, Community Development, Labour, and Local Government and UNICEF Belize visited several rural schools and communities in Orange Walk, Belize, Cayo, and Stann Creek Districts.

The schools received a vital lifeline, water tanks.

Minister of Rural Transformation Oscar Requena, along with CEO Shal and Charles Galvez, Ag Coordinator for Rural Development led the handing over for these essential resources, marking a significant stride in the Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) program.

The initiative, born out of a shared commitment to fostering sustainable development, aims to fortify schools and empower communities grappling with a dire need for water resources.

“Acknowledging the fundamental right of every individual to access safe and clean water the distributed water tanks represent more than just containers; they symbolize a lifeline for these communities,” the Ministry noted.

The tanks will act as reservoirs for a precious resource, ensuring a consistent and reliable water supply for daily needs.

This is particularly crucial for rural areas where access to clean water is often a challenge.

“As these water tanks find their homes in rural schools and communities, they represent a beacon of hope, resilience, and progress,” the Ministry added.
