The Japanese provides assistance to families in the wake of Hurricane Lisa
The efforts to help Belize recover following Hurricane Lisa’s passage have continued to take shape. Japan is one of the most recent international allies coming to the country’s assistance. Japan’s foreign ministry announced yesterday that it will provide emergency relief goods through the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA). That assistance is coming in the form of generators, sleeping pads, blankets, and other items. The government has reported that as of November 4, 5,000 people evacuated and 94,000 residents were affected.
