Residents in Salvapan, Belmopan come together to repair street







Residents of Belmopan have longed complained about the condition of the city’s streets. But last week, a group in the Salvapan area, decided to get up and do something about it. The video you are viewing was provided to us by a resident in the Costa Rica extension neighborhood, where residents pooled money together and bought material and rented equipments to in the best way that they could, make the street more endurable. We were told that an expected mother who resides in Salvapan recently had a frightening fall prior to the neighborhood effort and almost lost her baby and that while works were taking place, one bus driver, whose bus was stuck in the mud and was awaiting a tractor to assist him, learned about the initiative and took additional finance, out of his pocket to donate to the cause.
