ERDO is responding to emergency needs after the Volcano Eruption in St. Vincent

Volcano EruptionOn the morning of Friday, April 9th, La Soufrière volcano erupted in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Approximately 16,000 people, 20 per cent of the nation’s total population, were evacuated to nearby islands and neighboring nations. All other citizens were told to remain in their homes.

Smaller eruptions continued over the next several days, spewing more white ash and cutting off power and water supplies.

Thank you for helping us respond to the immediate needs of people in St. Vincent and the Grenandines. Many of these families lives changed in a matter of days. 
Working alongside the Pentecostal Assemblies of West Indies (PAWI), we concentrated our relief efforts on a single evacuee centre where 60 people were living after the eruption. Together, we provided daily meals for one month, served by local volunteers from churches in the area. While meeting the physical needs of these displaced
people, church volunteers shared the love of Jesus in a tangible way, and offered emotional support.
We are now collaborating with PAWI to develop a longer-term recovery plan to help rebuild homes and repair the areas most affected by the volcano eruption.

To continue supporting displaced people in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, please donate today! Thank you in advance for your support and you ongoing generosity in times of critical need.

Your donation of any amount provides immediate relief to people in crisis.
