Hurricane Earl Affects 110,000 Children in Belize

09 Aug 16 - No one died when Hurricane Earl made landfall in Belize last Thursday, but by UNICEF’s count, more than 100,000 children in Belize were affected. That’s not to say that number of children was physically hurt when the Category 1 system’s heavy winds and rains destroyed buildings and flooded neighbourhoods, according to UNICEF representative Ivan Yerovi.
