Website is now live!

24 hours ago Björn and Gemma of opendeved.net reached out to us to offer pro bono support to inter alia develop our website as one of the platforms to get our message out and to communicate with you. We are happy to report that the website is now ready for you to visit at https://uksvgfriends.org/.

You can also find us on Instagram and Twitter as @uksvgfriends, see https://twitter.com/uksvgfriends, https://instagram.com/uksvgfriends.

At the time of writing, over 3000 donors have contributed to our appeal raising in excess of £125,000. H.E Cenio Lewis is overwhelmed by the response of the Vincentian community, and friends of St. Vincent and the Grenadines who are supporting us on this mission.

The SVG High Commission has been receiving other offers of assistance and in-kind donations which ignite our spirits on a daily basis. On that note, we will be looking for an auditor from our donor community who will be willing to volunteer some time to ensure that we can report back to this community that everything has been done by best practice. We wish to remain faithful to you our donors.

Great news! We are inching closer and closer to £100,000 and with your continued support, we will get there soon.

However, we are excited that we have received official communications from the Government of St. Vincent and the Grenadines through the High Commission’s Office that our campaign has been officially endorsed. See photo below! This helps us to focus on what matters!

Thanks to new friends to the Trust like Björn and Gemma who reached out to us today after making a donation, we will be getting a spanking new website shortly to better communicate with you. Björn and Gemma from www.opendeved.net have volunteered their services to get this important work done.

We have heard, you want us to get this right and we promise we are in this for the long haul. #forMother Hairouna!
