St. Vincent in Need… Jamaica Sends Food and Relief Supplies – Video

Large areas of St. Vincent is currently covered in thick ash from the ongoing eruption which caused over 16000 persons to be evacuated prior to the most recent mudflow from the volcano. As a result of the devastation, the United Nations (UN) started a global funding request to meet a goal of US$29.2 million for relief efforts.

Today, Jamaica will be sending over food, water and other supplies to help in relief efforts. Learn more about this effort in the video report below.

“We are dealing with a crisis within the COVID crisis. We fear the risk of spike in COVID cases, especially with people in shelters. Moreover, this is a very uncertain and complex situation where new eruptions may occur. Another one occurred two days ago, so the situation can deteriorate rapidly,” says a St. Vincent official.
