Antigua and Barbuda is sending water to St. Vincent in addition to receiving evacuees.
The twin island state will this evening be sending a 40 foot container of potable water to the beleaguered country.
That’s according to NODS Director Philmore Mullin.
This aid is compliments LIONS and its partners.
Last week, Prime Minister Gaston Browne received a call from his Vincentian counterpart, Honourable Ralph Gonsalves, during the late afternoon when Cabinet was in session.
Antigua and Barbuda is also prepared to ship items to St. Vincent in the event populations gather in stadiums and on playfields, and are in need of tents, blankets, cots, packaged food, and tablets to purify water.
Antigua and Barbuda’s Cabinet offered to accommodate 250 persons if evacuation is ordered. Whereupon, the Director of NODS, the Chief Immigration Officer, the Head of the EMS, and the Manager of the Jolly Beach Hotel were invited to Cabinet.
A plan to accommodate 250 Vincentians, fleeing the volcano, was immediately worked-out.
