The Family Association Building of the Belize Defence Force (BDF) at Price Barracks in Ladyville has been fully renovated thanks to a $120,000.00 BZD donation from Republic of China (Taiwan). The building, which was in dire need of repair, has now been converted into a welcoming and safe space for the families of the soldiers.

As a result of the renovations, all structural beams, slabs, columns, retaining walls, ceiling, and floors were reinforced. Electrical fixtures were upgraded while all gutters, faucets, and plumbing were properly sealed to avoid corrosion. The building was also retrofitted with twenty hurricane shutters and its exterior and interior walls repainted and caulked.

With the upgrades, the BDF is now able to provide affordable, quality dormitories for soldiers to host their families while on duty over the weekends. The Ministry of Defence and the Belize Defence Force would like to thank the Government and People of Taiwan for their generous support and for helping to bring BDF families together.
