In an effort to assist Vincentians living through this environmental emergency we are organizing to provide 200,000 3 ply surgical masks to local organizations. The threat of continued volcanic ash makes this bulk donation necessary: "The fine ash particles, which are difficult to clean up, pose a respiratory risk, especially for people with underlying issues." - Richard Robertson, a geologist with the University of the West Indies Seismic Research Centre [ via NPR 4/10; NPR 4/12 ]
The entire amount of this GoFundMe covers the purchase cost and freight of 200,000 masks delivered to St. Vincent.
