Donation of Relief Supplies to Cuba

A quantity of relief supplies was handed over to the Cuban Ambassador in Belize on Wednesday, September 24, 2008. Almost two thousand pounds of relief items consisting mainly of food supplies was handed over by the Director of the National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) Mrs. Noreen Fairweather, to Cuba’s Ambassador, His Excellency Manuel Rubido.

The supplies are being donated by the Government and people of Belize to the Government and people of Cuba in the wake of the devastation caused to that island nation by the passage of Hurricane Ike earlier this month.

An aircraft belonging to MINEVEC, (pronounced: mee-neh-vec) the Cuban relief agency is this afternoon flying the supplies to Cuba.
