Donations keep coming in to NEMO Scotia Bank account to assist earthquake victims in Haiti. On January 15, 2010, NEMO Corozal, along with the Minister of Health and the Corozal Town Council pooled their resources together and held a Barbeque Sale and Radiothon under the banner: TOGETHER FOR HAITI. That event raised five thousand six hundred dollars ($5,600) for the Haiti Relief Fund.
On 25 February 2010, Belize Telemedia Limited, on the occasion of the Company’s Annual General Meeting in Belize City, donated twenty thousand dollars ($20,000) towards this humanitarian cause. Among the most recent is a twenty five thousand US dollar (US$25,000) donation from Belize’s ambassador in the Dominican Republic, His Excellency, Eduardo Lama. The Ministry of Health donated three thousand eight hundred dollars ($3,800) to the NEMO Relief Fund from contributions made by the staff members.
To date, a total of seventy-nine thousand, one hundred and eighty seven dollars and fifty four cents ($79,187.54) has been deposited to NEMO’s Relief Fund Account Number: 193-48-10 to assist the earthquake victims in Haiti.
Other groups and individuals are also being called upon to make donations to assist in this ongoing relief effort. NEMO thanks the various groups and individuals that have made financial donations to assist the people in Haiti one way or the other.
