Belize launches appeal for cash donations to assist St. Vincent and the Grenadines

Posted: Tuesday, April 13, 2021. 1:05 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma: On Monday, the Government of Belize launched an appeal for cash donations to support the people of St. Vincent and the Grenadines affected by the eruption of the La Soufrière Volcano.

On April 9, the volcano erupted wreaking widespread destruction to property and disruption to their way of life.

The volcano has entered an explosive eruptive phase that may continue over the next few days and weeks. Subsequent explosions are expected to be of similar or larger magnitude.

About 18% of the population of St. Vincent and the Grenadines (110,000) has been displaced by the La Soufrière eruption. Additionally, an estimated 3% of the population (3,500) is located in shelters and numbers are reported to be rising.

Heavy ash fall is a major concern and has affected persons with respiratory conditions as well as housing, drainage and infrastructure including the water supply.

Those wishing to assist can donate money through the Belize Red Cross.

“In this time of great need, the Government of Belize urges all to give as generously as possible. The people of St. Vincent and the Grenadines need our help,” a statement from the Government said.
