St. Vincent Emergency Aid - Help Needed!


At 8:40am on April 9, 2021, the La Soufrière volcano in St. Vincent and the Grenadines reached an explosive eruption stage and 16,000 residents were evacuated.

SVG now faces multiple crises: the COVID-19 pandemic, an outbreak of dengue fever, and the explosive eruption of the La Soufrière volcano.


CARI-ON, and the team of organizations under the SVG Disaster Relief Initiative Platform (SVG-DRIP) have come together to acquire and ship emergency items to SVG for the displaced residents. The SVG DRIP team has sent PPE and various types of emergency supplies to our beloved SVG over the past few months. We need your donation to help us cover the cost of purchasing and shipping items to SVG. Donations will be sent directly to the National Emergency Management Organization in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.  

We hope we can count on you for your support and generosity in the best interest of our beloved nation of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. May God bless our nation.
