On April 26, ALBA-TCP established the humanitarian airlift to help the people of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines after the emergency generated by the eruption of the La Soufrière volcano.
On that occasion, the Bolivarian National Armed Force (FANB) ship AB Goajira (T-63) arrived at the port of Kingstown, the Vincentian capital, with humanitarian aid containing 280 tons of drinking water, 48 tons of supplies, food, items of hygiene and personal hygiene, according to information released by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
