Scotia Bank gives $100 thousand for Hurricane Earl relief

Written By M.Sutherland

Scotia Bank extended assistance in the form of $100,000 and two scholarships last week to aid in continued hurricane Earl relief efforts.

Managing Director Michael Shaw handed over the donations last Thursday at the bank’s main branch on Albert Street. The cheques were handed over to officials from Hand in Hand Ministries and the Belize Red Cross.

A scholarship presentation was made to Primelie Humes and Alesha Hylton, the daughters of Debora Humes, who died in September when a house collapsed on her the day before the Carnival road march, in the aftermath of hurricane Earl.

Scotia Bank expressed its commitment to support Belizeans in tragic times by all means possible. It also stated that despite the fact that the hurricane is gone there are still devastating effects impacting families who are struggling to recover. Scotia Bank also stated that it is looking forward to partnering with other NGO’s to provide assistance to affected persons.
