MUSTIQUE VOLCANO EMERGENCY RELIEF FUND (VERF)

On Friday 9th April 2021, the first of several eruptions of La Soufrière Volcano occurred with the largest eruption spewing ash up to 32,000 feet high into the sky. This resulted in significant ash fall that affected the northern part of mainland St. Vincent with over 20,000 persons being displaced or affected.

Persons were evacuated from the Red and Orange Zones, which are mainly the most rural areas, where small farmers depend heavily on agriculture and farming. Receiving the most significant amount of ash fall, all these famers including even the established farmers are reeling from the devastation. Most have suffered lost or damage to crops, fruit trees, animals and in some cases equipment along with damage to their homes.

With the devastation of the impact of the eruptions, a large percentage of the residents and farmers of the Red and Orange Zones may not be able to recover for months or even years.

The Mustique Volcano Emergency Relief Fund (VERF) aims to assist those from the Red and Orange Zones, especially the small farmers who were impacted and are most in need, to rebuild their livelihood to become self-sustainable and restore their independence and dignity as quickly as possible.

Already the Mustique Charitable Trusts, the Mustique Charitable Foundation and the Mustique Company has assisted in multiple ways: whether through delivery of grocery boxes, water, camping cots, camping mattresses, clothing, toiletries, educational supplies, medical supplies and cleaning equipment.

However, we can only do this with the support of our friends. Therefore, we thank you on behalf of the people of St Vincent and the Grenadines for your compassion and generosity.
