SDM Ambassador Encourages Fathers to get vaccinated

Join the call to action!

Monday, June 28, 2021 — The Sustainable Development Movement (SDM) Summit’s 2021 cohort of ambassadors have hit the ground running, spearheading a number of initiatives within their communities to raise awareness on the importance of a sustainable future, with a particular focus on the added complexities imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

SDM Ambassador for the United States and CEO of Deeds Driven Dads, Coach Stevan Lynn, in partnership with the Caribbean Fatherhood Coalition (CFC), recently launched the “Fathers for Life Campaign” – encouraging 10,000,000 fathers and father figures in the Caribbean region to become fully vaccinated.

"As the pandemic continues we now are faced with another foe... ourselves. False rumours, ancient myths, weak excuses and fears are delaying the eradication of the virus while further jeopardizing our children's future and the lives of family members," Lynn said.

According to Medical News Today, men are most likely to not get vaccinated, not wear a mask or safe distance and most likely die due to unresolved underlying conditions and obesity.  

Answer the Caribbean Fatherhood Coalition’s call to action by spreading the word and encouraging fathers and father figures in your community to get vaccinated. 

Let’s get to 10,000,000!

About The Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States

Back to www.oecs.int

The Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) is an International Organisation dedicated to economic harmonisation and integration, protection of human and legal rights, and the encouragement of good governance among independent and non-independent countries in the Eastern Caribbean. The OECS came into being on June 18th 1981, when seven Eastern Caribbean countries signed a treaty agreeing to cooperate with each other while promoting unity and solidarity among its Members. The Treaty became known as the Treaty of Basseterre, so named in honour of the capital city of St. Kitts and Nevis where it was signed. The OECS today, currently has eleven members, spread across the Eastern Caribbean comprising Antigua and Barbuda, Commonwealth of Dominica, Grenada, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, St Vincent and The Grenadines, British Virgin Islands, Anguilla, Martinique and Guadeloupe.
