Lord Michael Ashcroft has pledged ten million dollars to the Government of Belize as part of the COVID-19 Response Fund.  Prime Minister spoke briefly of this donation in today’s press conference.

Rt. Hon. Dean Barrow, Prime Minister of Belize: There is as well the $10 million dollar donation that has been or is being gifted to us by Lord Ashcroft. I tried to find out how this would work and he indicated that it would be run through his Belize Bank, it would not come into the Consolidated Revenue Fund. A committee would be set up to oversee the disbursement of the money which would go principally as I understand it to the Ministry of Health in order to help to pay for the personal protective equipment, for the testing kits and for the compensation package that we are trying to augment with respect to these all important people so I don’t want to seem ungrateful, we certainly appreciate that $10 million dollar donation.”

The donation will be disbursed via the Belize Bank Limited.  According to a release from the Belize Bank Limited, Lord Ashcroft has communicated this to the Prime Minister of Belize.  It is uncertain whether there are any conditions attached to the donation.
