By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The GraceKennedy (GK) Group has pledged over 13 million Jamaican dollars (US$86,000) in support of relief efforts in St. Vincent and the Grenadines after the eruptions of La Soufrière volcano in St Vincent in April said News784 from Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.

GraceKennedy said the money would be used to purchase and ship supplies for the people affected by the volcano eruptions.

A part of the pledge will be allocated to Grace Kennedy’s charitable partners that are working on the ground supporting those who have been most negatively affected by the disaster.

“By all accounts from our team on the ground in St. Vincent, the current situation on the island is critical,” said GK Group CEO, Don Wehby. “While volcanic activity is expected to continue anywhere from days to weeks, the long-term impact of this disaster will continue for months, and possibly even years to come.”

“Last week I set a target among our subsidiaries that GK will donate J$10 million ($66,000) to St Vincent relief over the next four months. In response, we have received commitments from both our food and financial services subsidiaries all over the world amounting to over J$13 million. In only a few days we have already surpassed what we set out to do, and I think that really speaks volumes to how much we live by our ‘we care’ mantra at GK.”

“We are in ongoing dialogue with our team in St Vincent to ensure that the supplies we send are what is needed. We are our Caribbean brothers’ and sisters’ keepers, and our thoughts and prayers are with all St Vincentians, including our GK team members, who have been impacted by this devastating event,” said Wehby.
