PRESS RELEASE

Prayers for The Lions Family and People of St Vincent

The island of St Vincent has declared a red alert and issued an evacuation order after seismologists warned that the La Soufrière volcano shows signs of an imminent eruption. Prime Minister, Dr. Ralph Gonsalves, issued the order today Thursday, April 8, 2021 after several days of increased seismic activity. The country’s National Emergency Management Organisation has said there was a “substantial prospect of disaster”, and warned residents to “be ready, get your things in order.”

As a Multiple District we stand with the people of St Vincent and the Grenadines at this time and wish to convey to our Lions Family in St Vincent our deep concern for their wellbeing.

We are aware that other countries St Lucia, Antigua, and Barbados may be housing evacuees if required. No doubt Lions Clubs in these countries may become involved in supporting this effort. “Where there is a need there is a Lion.” Additionally, the MD Global Service Team stand ready to coordinate support if needed.

Please pray for the people of St Vincent. We are reminded that God remains with us in these situations and nothing is impossible for God.
