HOW CAN WE HELP from home?

This is a very difficult time for so many people around the world, but there are still many ways we can help from the safety of our homes. This is one of them:
 
Believe in Belize is a non-profit run completely by volunteers locally in Belize. They have recently put out a request for individual donations to aid in the COVID-19 medical efforts in Belize and they have committed to 100% of the donations received from April - August 2020 going to support Belizeans dealing with the aftermath of the Coronavirus pandemic.
