US donates P5.1-M aid for Taal relief




The Foreign aids are coming in, last week we saw China and South Korea providing help for the Taal volcano evacuees in Batangas.
The country’s ally – the United States of America (USA) just gave the government efforts in USD100,000 or about PHP5.1 million in relief assistance to the communities affected by the recent eruption and continued unrest of Taal Volcano.


The aid was announced by no less than US ambassador to the Philippines Sung Kim himself when he visited two evacuation centers in Nasugbu and Calatagan in Batangas.

The US ambassador lauded the evecuees "strength and resilience" even after facing the devastation and loss followed by the volcanic eruption.
“As friends, partners, and allies to the Philippines, we will continue to support our Philippine government counterparts as they work to address the needs of those communities most affected by the eruption," Kim said.
Washington, through the US Agency for International Development (USAID), will partner with World Vision in providing relief supplies that include soap, sleeping mats, and blankets, to nearly 7,600 people temporarily housed at the Nasugbu West Central School evacuation center.


The US Ambassador who was in Calatagan joined Philippines Disaster Resilience Foundation (PDRF) partners in distributing supplies to the displaced BatangueƱos. PDRF is a major private sector vehicle and coordinator for disaster management in the Philippines.
