Belmopan Police Aid San Pedro Fire Victims

The Belmopan police are sending nonperishable goods to the people who fell victim to the San Pedro fire that happened over the weekend. Several businesses were destroyed and over 20 families were left homeless due to the fire. The Belmopan Police decided to lend a helping hand to the victims of the fire by donating nonperishable food items and clothing. Supt. Howell Gillett told us about this initiative.

“Well we heard the plight of the people of San Pedro, as it relates to the fire that occurred over the weekend, and we quickly sprung into action and we enlisted the support of the business community. It was no trouble at all and in a few days we were able to garner $500 worth of items, just the basic necessities. “


The packages that are being sent to the island will be going up with Tropic Air, who is transporting the goods free of cost. Manager of Tropic Air is Rondel Usher told us that this is just how they are doing their part in helping.
