Japan partners with DSWD in helping Taal victims




Philippine- Japan relationship has never been this active and robust.
The Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) has donated safety and survival equipment for persons and families affected by Taal Volcano’s eruption in the Calabarzon (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal and Quezon) region, even if the alert level of the volcano has been reduced from Alert Level 4 to Alert Level 3 and some residents have been allowed to return into their homes even if it is within the 14km danger zone.


JICA Chief Representative Wada Yoshio along with Embassy of Japan Charge d Affaires Yamamoto Yasushi and Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Secretary Rolando Bautista on Wednesday signed a deed of donation at the DSWD Operation Center Building in Batasan, Quezon City.

The Japanese official can relate to the sad plight of the evacuees since it also happens in Japan, being also located just like the Philippines in the so called “ring of fire.”

“We empathize with the Filipinos whose lives were interrupted by the explosion. Japan is in solidarity with the people of the Philippines and it is our great hope that our assistance will provide a measure of convenience,” he said in his speech
JICA has donated 10,000 N95 face masks; 5,500 portable water (5 gallons); 5,000 portable jerry can; and five sets of generators and cord reels.
