Rolling Stones Singer Mick Jagger Wants Help For The Victims Of Natural Disasters In Caribbean Island
The Rolling Stones’ lead vocalist Mick Jagger shared a post on his official Instagram page showing support for the victims of the volcanic eruptions on the Caribbean island of St. Vincent, asking his fans to help those people who were left with no house, food, and water.
As many of you might know, the La Soufrière volcano on the Caribbean island of St. Vincent began a series of volcanic eruptions on April 9, releasing hot ash clouds into the air, covering much of the island in ash and causing water and electricity outages.
The eruptions have been continuing nearly every single day since April 14, and they are more likely to continue for weeks according to officials. The 1979 eruption, apparently, late for two and a half months while a deadly 1902 eruption lasted about eight months.
Up until now, fortunately, there haven’t been any casualties or injuries in the areas, however, people of that region are now homeless without access to clean water due to the fact that ash has suffocated farmland and contaminated local water reserves, therefore, the help must be delivered as much as possible to the area.
After seeing the devastating incident, Mick Jagger shared a post on his official Instagram page revealing heartbreaking pictures from the area covered ashes in addition to showing support for the victims of the eruption, especially those who lost their houses, finding a hard time having an access to clean water, let alone food.
Here is what Jagger said:
“Following the continuing eruptions of the volcano of La Soufrière on the Caribbean island of St. Vincent, thousands of people have been left homeless and thousands more have little food or water. There is a huge humanitarian effort taking place to supply essentials to those evacuated. To find out more and to see how you can help please visit the link in bio.”
