Shelton Defour, who received the goods on behalf of NEMO.“Hurricane season reminds us that even as the United States and the government of Belize focus on reducing the spread of COVID-19 in Belize, we must also work together to prepare against the threat of natural disasters,” Maj. Adams declared. “The U.S. Embassy and U.S. Southern Command remain strongly committed to our partnership with the National Emergency Management Organization to deliver timely assistance to the people of Belize in the event of a hurricane or any other natural disaster through the donation of this critical emergency preparedness equipment.”The donations include items such as generators, blankets, folding chairs, tables, box spring mattresses, water canisters, and lamps intended for use in a crisis.
