On the morning of the 9th of April, La Soufrière , a volcano on the island of St Vincent and the Grenadines, awoke for the first time in more than 40 years.
This beautiful nation is now divided into safe zones and no-go areas, the lush green of the Caribbean replaced by blankets of grey – the sludge caused by the volcano’s ash mixing with rain.
And while there have been no deaths – there is still danger. Water supplies are running low, crops have been destroyed, livelihoods at a loss, and with thousands still unable to return home.
This volcano has not erupted since 1979 – the same year St Vincent became independent from British rule – now a member of the Commonwealth, will the UK step up to help?
