The UAE today sent 30 metric tons of urgent food supplies to Saint Vincent, benefitting 5,000 people to alleviate the humanitarian repercussions on the population as a result of the eruption of La Soufrière volcano in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines in the Caribbean Sea, which resulted in the displacement of approximately 15,000 people.

His Excellency Bader Abdullah Al Matroshi, UAE Ambassador to Cuba and UAE’s representative to the Association of the Caribbean States, said: “The UAE always seeks to provide all possible support to brotherly and friendly countries in circumstances that require solidarity and cooperation at all levels."

His Excellency added, “The dispatch of a food supplies plane to Saint Vincent today reflects the continuous efforts made by the UAE in meeting the basic needs of those affected by natural disasters.”
