 We have been deeply touched by the outpouring of kindness and prayers from nationals and friends of Antigua and Barbuda – all of whom have offered their assistance in these difficult times.   The pictures and videos of the devastation in Barbuda, indeed across the Caribbean, are overwhelming and have touched hearts all over the world.  We weep with those who weep but we also rejoice for lives spared.

The Antigua and Barbuda High Commission has partnered with The Ascension Trust, its chosen charity to co-ordinate monetary donations.  Details are available on our website and social media respectively. and social media pages, and www.instagram/abhcuk.

This will be a time to come together in song and praise to celebrate life, hope and deliverance for the Peoples of Antigua and Barbuda. May God continue to bless Antigua and Barbuda. A special offering to support the rebuilding efforts in Barbuda will be collected.
