UN to launch funding appeal for Saint Vincent and the Grenadines following volcano eruption
Didier Trebucq, UN Resident Coordinator for Barbados and the
Caribbean, briefed journalists on response to the growing humanitarian
crisis sparked after long-dormant La Soufrière volcano erupted last week, displacing some 20,000 people, or roughly one-fifth of the population.
Around 6,000 are considered vulnerable.
“We are about to initiate the UN funding appeal and response plan to
support the humanitarian response, but also the early recovery for the
next six months”, he said, speaking via video link from Barbados.
“This is a crisis that is going to last certainly more than six months in the
sub-region, in Saint Vincent, and other islands.”
Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, located in the southern Caribbean, consists of more than 30 islands and cays, nine of which are inhabited.
At 4,000 feet tall, La Soufrière dominates the largest island, Saint Vincent.
The volcano had been silent since 1979, but began spewing smoke and rumbling in December, before erupting on Friday.
“We are facing regular eruptions of the volcano, including up to last night”, Mr. Trebucq reported.
There are multiple ways to donate here through
CanadaHelps.org to support one or multiple campaigns to assist with disaster relief.
Unstoppable Foundation: Celebration of Courage
April 21st, 2021
This time last year, we were making final preparations for our Unstoppable Gala, and then the global pandemic struck and the in-person Gala to benefit children and communities in Kenya was canceled. But I’ve got great news! We are having a “Celebration of Courage” event on April 21, 2021. While this year’s event will be held virtually, it won’t be any less inspiring.
We’ll be celebrating the courage it’s taken for so many Kenyans to keep going this last year and honoring those who have continued to support others who needed a helping hand. With wonderful entertainment including The Tenors, David Foster and Katharine McPhee, and more.
General Admission tickets start at just $62. For more info about the event and to get your tickets, go to https://unstoppablecelebration.org/. This is going to be an inspiring and life-giving event and your presence will mean the world to me and to the families your generosity will be impacting.
It will be an inspiring and fun evening and you don’t want to miss it!
We hope to “see” you there!

Israel's Vaccine Rollout Offers Hope for Countries Lagging Behind
Israel's fastest-in-the world vaccine campaign, which reached half its citizens as of Sunday, is offering other countries the first real-life look at how mass inoculation can bend the trajectory of the coronavirus pandemic.
A rush of Israeli medical research — some emerging too fast for academic journals to keep up — reveals that the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is even more effective than hoped at preventing serious disease and death, safe for nearly all adults, and almost completely free of serious side effects.
Israel’s scientific results have allowed health officials to open the inoculation program to pregnant women and nursing mothers, while the findings also showed that it was safe for those with food allergies and autoimmune diseases.
And the vaccine has proved so good at protecting the elderly, who are especially vulnerable, that hospital administrators here say it has all but eliminated the risk that covid-19 cases would collapse their critical care systems. Almost 90 percent of Israelis over 50 have been fully vaccinated.
Same Technology Behind Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine is Leading Researchers to Possible MS Breakthrough
Both jabs use a piece of genetic material called mRNA which trains your genes to encode for proteins optimally designed to fight against whichever disease they are programed to fight.
In the case of MS, which is not a virus but rather a disorder of the autonomic immune system, the auto-antigen encoded within the mRNA helped the immune system tolerate specific MS-related proteins without compromising normal immune function.
This halted the progression of the disease, and even restored lost motor function in mice.
BioNTech, the German firm which together with Pfizer created one of the COVID-19 vaccines, says they have used the same technology to create a vaccine which delayed the onset and reduced the severity of multiple sclerosis (MS) in mice.
