Today the Ministry of Education, Culture, Science and Technology received a donation of desktop computers and hygienic supplies from the Embassy of the Republic of China (Taiwan) in Belize. At the handing-over ceremony, Ambassador David Kuan-Chou Chien presented eleven desktop computers, twenty-thousand masks and four hundred and eighty bottles of hand sanitiser with a total value of BZ$200,000 to Hon. Education Minister Francis Fonseca. All the items that were handed over at today’s event were donated by SimplyHelp Foundation, a Taiwanese charity organisation in the United States. In his remarks, Ambassador Chien noted, “As all schools begin to return to full pre-pandemic schedules, the Embassy of Taiwan hopes the donation of the computers will be useful in facilitating both teaching and studying in the classroom, while hygienic supplies will be distributed to the schools to safeguard the health of Belize’s education community.” Minister Fonseca expressed his appreciation for Taiwan’s continued support and also reiterated his commitment to strengthening the partnership between the two governments.
