With the Belizean economy being severely impacted by the COVID19 pandemic, I have observed a stark difference in the number of Belizean families and individuals who are unemployed, hungry and are resorting to desperate measures in order to feed their families. Belize has always been a poor country with limited resources to provide substantial social assistance to all those in need. Due to COVID, these conditions have been exacerbated due to huge spikes in unemployment, poverty and loss of national income. It is quite common these days to hear the desperation in the voices of many Belizeans, many of whom were gainfully employed before the pandemic. I have noticed and been approached by many who have turned to begging for food to feed their families. I believe that raising funds to provide essential food services for these families would not only give these people who have fallen on hard times a sense of dignity but also give them the means to sustain themselves and their families. A small donation would make a huge difference in the lives of many Belizean Families. A US $13 can help feed a person for about two weeks.  Thank you for your generous support in making a difference in the lives of Belize City residents.
