During the Christmas holidays the islands were affected by heavy winds and torrential rains which caused mudslides and tsunami type floods resulting in several deaths, destruction of homes and millions of dollars lost in agricultural crops.
The Belize Red Cross and the UWI call on all Belizeans to assist thousands of our Caribbean brothers and sisters affected by this disaster. Former students of Mona, Cave Hill and St. Augustine Campuses of the University of the West Indies are being urged to support this appeal.
Donations received will be forwarded to the International Federation of Red Cross which is spearheading efforts in support to families and farmers in the three islands on behalf of the Movement.
Any individual or company wishing to make a monetary contribution to this appeal can do so to the Belize Red Cross bank accounts at any of the 5 local banks countrywide.
For more information please call Communications Officer, Rodel Beltran Perera @ 227-3319/3617 of Mrs. Jane Bennett at U.W.I. at 223-0484
