SVG La Soufriere Volcano Recovery Assistance Programme (SVG-RAP) 2021

The UK-SVG Friendship Trust has partnered with the SVG High Commission and other partners to spearhead efforts to mobilise the Vincentian diaspora and wider UK society to respond to the active threat to lives and livelihoods since the explosive eruption of the La Soufriere volcano on 9th April 2021.

Since then, we have accepted support from over 2000 donors on our official GoFundMe page to raise much needed funds to ensure that our friends and families in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines receive critical support.

As we continue to monitor developments on the ground, the Trust is mindful that the road to recovery will be a long one. Therefore, we are actively working on a short, medium and long term plan to remain responsive to the changing needs of the communities.
