The Holy Cross Anglican Primary School in San Pedro Town received a much needed donation in the form of an industrial type stove. On Tuesday, the school management invited the different stakeholders that made the donation possible to a symbolic ribbon cutting ceremony.DSCF0693-sm The donation was made possible through the financial contribution of Tony and Ginger Rodger from Amarillo, Texas, USA. The couple was in Belize during the summer program at Holy Cross and noticed the need and returned back home and secured the donation. The stove was handed to Pastor Tim Tom from Word at Work Ministries in Texas, after which it was shipped to Belize. The shipping expense from Texas to Belize was covered by Belize Natural Energy Trust. Once in Belize, Island Ferry covered the transportation expenses from Belize City to San Pedro Town.DSCF0711-smThe total donation including transportation is estimated at Belize $16,000. The stove will be used to prepare meals for the school’s feeding program. According to the local manager of Holy Cross, Francis Wilson, the stove will benefit some 527 students.DSCF0730-sm
