PR – The National Disaster Management Agency (NaDMA) extends our profound gratitude to the citizens of Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique and in the diaspora in what was a show of unwavering brotherly support for our brothers and sisters in St. Vincent and the Grenadines following the eruption of the La Soufriere Volcano on Friday 9th April, 2021.
On Saturday 10th April, 2021, the Agency issued an urgent call for water and other relief supplies, a call answered in the most impassioned way that to date records of received relief supplies show over five thousand cases of water, and donations of medication, food stuff, sanitary and cleaning supplies received and recorded by the Agency.
Reports coming from St. Vincent indicate that over ninety percent of their water system is operational, therefore the desperate need for water no longer exists but the focus now is on other essential products needed in ensuring displaced families are much more comfortable in their temporary shelter arrangement.
Base on the needs list provided by St. Vincent and the Grenadines/CDEMA the Agency therefore issues an appeal for donation of the following items:
Powder free examination latex gloves-(cases)
Hand sanitizer- refills bulk size – (cases)
Ventolin respirator solution- 20ml bottles
Reflective vests neon green
Bottled Eye wash
Baby Pampers – mostly new-born but some other sizes
New-born baby clothes
Heavy duty latex cleaning gloves
Feminine hygiene supplies
Water purification tablets
Black large/jumbo garbage bags
Brooms- hard & soft
Persons wishing to make cash donations can make deposits to the National Disaster Relief account #121004900 at the Grenada Cooperative Bank.
Let us lend a helping hand to our brothers and sisters in St. Vincent and Grenadines.
