Belmopan Youths Receive Back to School Donations

School children across the nation’s capital will receive backpacks with supplies, thanks to an initiative from the Lions Club in Belmopan. Correspondent Fem Cruz spoke to Moises Cal on Wednesday about the club’s back-to-school drive.

Moises Cal, Lions Club Belmopan: “One of the small areas of contribution that we’re doing, small but we hope is significant. This is a school supply project that we have undertaken to provide school exercise books, erasers, pencils, things that the children usually use to the most needy in our community. The list of students were selected by the principals and the teachers of nine different schools here in Belmopan and we will also be providing another fifty or a hundred more to other children in the surrounding communities. So this basically is a result of the contributions of the private sector in Belmopan and throughout Belize. This is a time that we have to express our gratitude to the lord almighty and to show our appreciation, something about giving, be kind to others because of the situation under which we are undergoing at the moment. We are living in a pandemic the economic situation of most parents are very difficult and therefore this is one way for us the Belmopan Lions Club to express that kind of support to our people.”
