Title: Grenada

Tier: 1

Type: country

The impact of COVID on Grenada has been felt nearly as keenly as the devastating hurricanes Ivan and Emily of years past. These hurricanes destroyed or damaged up to 90% of the island’s buildings. The agriculture and tourism sectors were virtually annihilated. Both sectors were rebuilt, but at the cost of crippling external debts. Some of this debt was restructured, but long-term solutions are still needed. The global spread of COVID devastated Grenada’s tourist industry, on which it is heavily dependent. Pray for sustainable solutions to Grenada’s current challenges, for debt reduction/forgiveness rather than restructuring, and for Grenadians to put their faith in God above all things.
