On the 9th of April, 2021, La Soufriere volcano erupted for the first time since 1979. This ongoing eruption continues to affect the people of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, as thousands of residents are now living in shelters.
The island of St. Vincent has seen extensive damage, which continues to worsen as the volcanic eruption continues. We are requesting your assistance during this challenging time.
