Due to its proximity to Central American countries such as Mexico and Guatemala, Belize is known as a transit point for illegal drug trafficking. Numerous incidents of drug discovery in schools in the south of the country involving students have been recorded. Many university students have expressed feelings of hopelessness and being stuck due to government corruption and nepotism. The pandemic saw the IS/ IVCF (IFES movement in Belize) ministry contract, but new shoots are emerging. Pray for students, staff and volunteers seeking to share Christ’s hope in schools, colleges and universities.
Viva’s partner network in Costa Rica has set up five Comprehensive Learning and Training Centres. They support families in the poorest communities to continue to meet their children’s basic needs; provide resilience and restoration and offer catch-up education for children. Pray that community centres would be a place of hope for children and families and pray for the provision of further centres in the coming months. Additionally, more than 300 children and 150 adults from 100 families in three communities of San José receive regular health support from specialists through the network’s Healthy Families, Healthy Children programme.
