On Friday, April 9, 2021, at approximately 8:43 a.m, the La Soufrière volcano (located on mainland Saint Vincent) erupted explosively after it began erupting effusively in late December 2020.
Resulting ash fall and pyroclastic flows have meant that an estimated 20,000 Vincentians have been evacuated from their homes in dangerous zones to shelters, hotels and other private accommodations. Our citizens are in dire need of assistance.
So far, the regional and international communities have been mobilising quickly to provide much-needed aid – which we are extremely grateful for. This outpouring of solidarity has touched us all – here in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and within our Diaspora.
However, there is a lot more to be done; especially given that we are still feeling the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are appealing for your help – every contribution will make a difference. To do so, please get in touch with our worldwide consulates and missions [see attachments] for legitimate ways to assist.
