Belize City, Belize - On the afternoon of Sunday 25th March 2018, just before 3pm, a bullet penetrated the roof of the KHMHA building at our Accident and Emergency Department.

The KHMH is highly concerned about the safety of our patients, visitors and staff and while no one was injured, the outcome could have been gravely different.

As a health institution we directly see the horrific damage that bullets cause to persons and we condemn all forms of gun violence which are destroying lives and causing an unnecessary strain on the limited resources of our health system.

We remind the general public of adherence to the law as it relates to discharging firearms in public. The KHMHA reminds the public that we are all responsible for the peace and safety of our nation.
