BEL Introduces its COVID-19 Relief Program
Friday, May 1st, 2020
Belize Electricity Limited (BEL) continues to provide relief for persons countrywide who are adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Company will provide food and care packages totaling $75,000 in value for distribution to approximately 600 marginalized families across the country, commencing May 4, 2020.
The distribution will be managed by the Ministry of Human Development, Social Transformation and Poverty Alleviation, through its Food Assistance Program. Recipients will be selected based on the Ministry’s standardized screening criteria of over 80,000 persons, who have no source of income or recently lost their main source of income.
This initiative is one of several under the BEL Cares Community Outreach Program through which the Company is assisting customers, organizations and communities to manage the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in Belize.
BEL and its employees are extremely grateful for the opportunity to assist our fellow Belizeans during this time of great need. We continue to be here for communities across Belize.
