  • Grenada’s High Commissioner, H.E Kisha A. Grant writes: Many nationals have asked how they can contribute to Grenada at this time, through food hampers or aiding with the purchase of medical supplies for health workers. The High Commission met in May with the executive members of the Grenada Associations here in London, and we decided to activate the Disaster account here, through which we can all channel donations over the next few weeks, with a goal of analyzing where we are at by the end of May and making a contribution as a London group to Grenada. That way, we present a united front and we can all decide in what areas we will like to see the money spent. I thank the Associations for their co-operation in this regard, and I look forward to us making a difference in the lives of many of our citizens, through our donations.For details on how to contribute, please contact the High Commission via https://www.facebook.com/HighCommissionOfGrenada/
