THE Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) Commission is teaming up with several other entities to host a virtual event today that has benefited St Vincent and the Grenadines.
The Commission, along with the Global Coalition in support of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, in association with the Oxygen with Nicole (O2N) Foundation, will hold an official ceremony to commemorate the handover of funds raised to support St. Vincent and the Grenadines during the “Stronger Together…. We Are A Global Family” Campaign.
The April 2021 eruptions of La Soufrière volcano in St. Vincent and the Grenadines resulted in the displacement of some 20,000 people due to severe ash fall in the northern part of the island.
The Stronger Together… We are a Global Family Campaign rallied forces, both regionally and internationally, to raise funds for the people of St. Vincent and the Grenadines in the aftermath of the eruptions and the subsequent flooding of the southern part of the island.
The Commission said in a release that the Virtual Handover Ceremony can be viewed online today, October 22 at 10:00AM (AST) and the media as well as the public are invited to view the event.
