CEMO Receives Child Friendly Recreational Kits

Tue, 19th January 2021

Our Deputy Mayor, Michael Norales represented the Belize City Council today at a handing over ceremony for the Child Friendly Spaces Project. Through the combined efforts of UNICEF, the Belize Red Cross and our very own CEMO Division, Belize City's youths will now have access to organized environments where they can feel safe in times of disaster and receive support in an organized and stimulating environment.

After several training sessions, three cohorts of residents, members of the Belize Scouts Association and the Community Disaster Response Team have not only been educated to facilitate these Child Friendly Spaces but have now received Recreational Kits to do so. It was a pleasure working with all organizations involved to launch this much needed project, and we anticipate nothing but positive results for the youth of our city.
