In times of natural disasters such as hurricanes and floods the Trusts extend a helping hand to those involved so that persons can return to normal, productive lives as quickly as possible. Thanks to generous donors to our disaster relief fund, response can be rapid and reach those in need immediately. Working closely with the Government of St Vincent and the Grenadines, The National Emergency Management Organisation and The SVG Red Cross, essential supplies such as water, food and clothing are delivered to disaster shelters and those communities and persons in need of assistance.
The devastating floods in April 2013 and December 2013 caused widespread damage and thousands of trees were lost. In order to prevent further destabilisation and erosion, the Trusts enlisted the help of the Ministry of Agriculture and Richmond Vale Academy and community volunteers to have 10,000 trees planted in the affected areas. Moringa trees were the predominant species planted along with fruit trees to provide nutrition and much needed incomes in the future for these underprivileged rural communities.
