SP Police Formation holds fundraiser to help comrade with medical bills


The San Pedro Police Formation came together on Friday, January 28th, and had a barbeque fundraiser to help their comrade Police Constable Christian Cohuo, with medical expenses. The fundraiser was deemed successful, but anyone who wants to donate can visit the police station on Pescador Drive at any time.
Cohuo’s friends and close relatives shared that he became ill with pneumonia, and later his condition worsened to the point that he had to seek medical attention in Chetumal, Mexico. His lungs reportedly held fluid, and he had to undergo surgeries to save his life. According to those close to Cohuo, the medical bills are very high. To try and cover some of these costs, food sales have been taking place in his hometown of Louisville, Corozal District.
The barbeque sale on Friday in front of the police station saw many of his San Pedro police colleagues working together, selling, and delivering food orders. Many islanders had pre-orders and purchased plates, while many passersby stopped to buy tasty food to support the worthy cause. Other people stopped by to make monetary contributions as well.

The activity was a success, and the monies collected will help Cohuo with his medical expenses as he recovers at home in Corozal. The San Pedro Police Formation thanked everyone who came out and supported their fundraising for their colleague. They remind the public that contributions (monetary) can be made for Cuhuo at the island police station on Pescador Drive. Anyone willing and able to help is welcome any time and any day of the week. The San Pedro Police Formation can also be reached at 206-2022.
