UN to launch US$29-m appeal for St Vincent, other affected countries

The United Nations says it will launch a US$29.2 million global funding appeal later on Tuesday to help people affected by the eruptions of the La Soufrière volcano in St Vincent and the Grenadines and other impacted countries.

“The eruptions of the La Soufrière volcano are expected to displace close to 20,000 persons with over 12,700 evacuees now registered in public shelters and in private homes,” the UN said in a statement.
