Tuesday, December 24th, 2019
Employees of Belize Electricity Limited (BEL) continued an annual tradition of delivering Christmas hampers to 90 deserving families and 60 senior citizens countrywide on December 19 and 20, 2019. The hampers are valued at over $300 each and contain ingredients for a traditional Christmas dinner, groceries and toiletries. Employees and the Company donate towards the hampers throughout the year.
