Caye Chapel Development Co. supports Caye Caulker Residents


Press Release – Caye Chapel Development Co. – May 5, 2020 – Caye Chapel Development Co. made up of Mexican Investors, Thor Urbana, GFA, Immobilia and Aralpa, delivered supplies to the Caye Caulker Village Council for the residents of Caye Caulker. Caye Chapel is a direct neighbor to La Isla Cariñosa and is investing in an iconic Four Seasons Development. The Group felt compelled to assist when they heard of the halt of the tourism season and the substantial loss of jobs as a result of COVID19.


The supplies delivered include toilet paper, rice, flour, beans, sausage, raising agents, pasta, canned meats, and condiments, which were the items Chairlady Seleny Villanueva-Pott highlighted as most needed at this time.

The development is appreciative of Minister Heredia, the Caye Caulker Village Council, and the residents of the island who embraced the development with open arms when it was presented at the public consultations and looks forward to a future of collaboration beyond these extraordinary times. The development group has kept all of its local staff fully employed to date. It is taking all precautions in ensuring the safety and security of its employees who are all Belizeans. At the same time, the island manager volunteered a reduction in salary to contribute to their sustainability.

“Understanding that no man or business is an Island, the Development team decided to extend a helping hand during this time of need,” said Dionne Chamberlain, the group PR on the ground. Carson Shocklee, the Island Manager, delivered the small gift which will assist 400 households.

The Caye Chapel Development Co. asks that all residents continue to listen to and respect the direction of the National Oversight Committee and practice social distancing. The most valuable resource of this beautiful country is the wonderful people that add to the cultural experience, protect yourselves. May God bless us all.
