St Vincent update : May 6th 2021:
Out team has just returned from St Vincent and the devastation of farm lands and lush tropical fertile fruit trees that have been destoyed at the northern tip of the island. Our team was able to get into the red and orange zones and deliver solar lights sponsored by @Titoshandmadevodka and @Webbbanks and N95 masks, water filters, food water, soap etc.
Our local teams on the ground fell in love with this beautiful island and will continue to work with our local volunteers to get aid to the poeple.
We are currently working on getting 21 variety heirloom seeds to the farmers. Thankyou to Tequila - a local hero who has been helping from day 1 and who is leading our Third Wave volunteer effort.
The livestock and animals are starving so we are also trying to get feed up to the red and orange zones.
Please continue to donate.
Love Dr Alison - Founder- Third Wave Volunteers
A volcano on the eastern Caribbean island of St. Vincent has experienced an "explosive eruption," according to officials there, hours after increased activity at the mountain triggered a mandatory evacuation of nearby residents. On Friday morning, St. Vincent's National Emergency Management Organization, or NEMO, announced in a tweet that the volcano, known as La Soufrière, had erupted hours after it began spewing ash and steam. As of April 14th there have been approximately 30 villages evacuated-16-20K Estimated number of people affected 3.5K Estimated number of people in shelters 85 Shelters have been activated - these stats rise daily.
Our amazing sponsors TITOS HANDMADE VODKA and WEBB BANKS always rise to the occassion and TITOS have donated 10,000 $ towards solar lights so lets donate to match their funds so we can take more solar lights and N95 masks and water filters.
