Adding to this, the president of CCA further declared that “People who are in the Red Zone, if needed, the Castries Cricket Association is ready to help in any small way, to the evacuees who have been accommodated in St Lucia.”

“We must also keep this in mind that there may a time comes in the very near future that there would be Vincentians who would like to evacuate to Saint Lucia. There must be systems managed by both the private and public sector to help these people, for the impact of the volcanic eruptions will be felt beyond the shores of St Vincent and the Grenadines.”

Auguste also expressed that “He expects different ideas from the members of CCA, on how they can continue their contribution in the relief supplies. He also recognised long term socio-economic effects on the population, and is aware that the assistance programme will have to be continuous, and in partnership with other private-sector agencies and individuals.”

There are many neighbouring islands and countries that have provided endorsement to St Vincent and the Grenadines following the volcanic eruptions from La Soufriere. Roughly, around 20,000 residents have been evacuated. Many affected inhabitants have taken shelters at public
and private places.
