Emergency aid for victims of the volcanic eruption on St. Vincent

On April 10th, the volcano La Soufrière erupted on the Caribbean island of St. Vincent. After the initial eruption more followed daily. Almost 30,000 people were evacuated from the danger zone or had to flee. St. Vincent and the neighboring island of Barbados are covered in a layer of gray ash - St. Vincent has no clean drinking water. Hurricane Elsa is also making reconstruction more difficult and there are warnings of further hurricanes in the coming weeks.

The people who have fled St. Vincent are currently being cared for in around 100 camps - including around 5,000 children. As the founder of the Regine Sixt Children's Aid Foundation and Honorary Consul General of Barbados in Germany, Regine Sixt supports the children affected on St. Vincent. Also, SIXT USA sent around 200 company-sponsored play tents to the island on behalf of the Regine Sixt Children's Aid Foundation. In addition, SIXT employees in Fort Lauderdale donated over 100 essential childcare items such as baby diapers, wet wipes, and baby food, as well as toys and clothing for children.

“We quickly determined it was very important to help and provide relief for the disaster in St. Vincent. I want to thank our entire team here in Ft. Lauderdale for their immense efforts to donate essential items, such as clothes, tents, baby items and toys to the affected children.” - Thomas Kennedy, President and CFO of SIXT USA
