To date, over 1,600 food baskets have been donated by the Coastguard to communities throughout St Vincent and the Grenadines.

“In every village there is a Coastguard officer. We need your support,” Henry said.

Leading Seaman Lisa Browne, coordinator of the food basket distribution, expressed thanks to John West, who has been contributing to the effort for the past 20 years.
