As part of its Health Program / Medical Equipment Initiative, Believe in Belize initiated a project to provide 2 ambulances to service the Placencia Peninsula.
 
Strategically, Believe in Belize would like to assist emergency service providers acquire ambulances throughout Belize.  This is our first project.  The Rotary Club of Placencia (http://placencia-rotary.squarespace.com/) will assist us with clearing customs in Belize and driving the ambulances to Southern Emergency Services (https://www.facebook.com/sesbelize/) in Stann Creek District who will be the eventual owner of the ambulances and non-profit operator of the emergency service.
 
The ambulances will serve the Placencia peninsula community of 3,500-5,000 people (depending on tourist season).  Currently there is one ambulance privately owned by a local physician.  This service is for profit, and with limited availability.
 
The Rotary Club of Edmonton Riverview in Alberta, Canada (https://www.facebook.com/edmontonriverviewrotary/) is donating both ambulances to Believe in Belize.  However, the cost to refurbish and ship each ambulance is US $4,000 - $5,000 so we need to raise funds in the amount of $8,000 - $10,000.
 
As part of our project to donate computers to schools in Belize (details) we partnered with a Rotary organization, Resource Centers International (details) to manage the deployment.  If you live in Belize and would like to volunteer as an IT specialist or Educator, RCI would love to hear from you.
As part of its Education Program, Believe in Belize initiated a project to donate 205 computers (refurbished 64 bit architecture PC with keyboard & mouse, and monitor) to 41 schools and 1 junior college in Belize to aid in the establishment of school computer labs.  This project will benefit about 6000 students the first year and another 6000 over the 5 year estimated life of the computers.  The deployment will take place in the Fall of 2018 and Spring of 2019 through our partner, Medical Equipment and Supplies Abroad Foundation, Inc. - Rotary District 6600 / MESA (partnership announcement)  and with the collaboration of the following Rotary Clubs in Belize: Belize Sunrise, Corozal, Dangriga and Placencia  (Rotary in Belize).
