EU donates P42 million to Taal volcano victims




There is an old saying that it is better to give than to receive and this holds true even if Taal volcano seems to have mellowed down since it erupted weeks ago.

The European Union just gave 750,000 euros or more than P42 million for Taal victims in Batangas.



“This contribution will support the local government of Batangas and our humanitarian partners on the ground in providing crucial support to those who have lost their shelters, belongings and sources of livelihoods in the wake of the eruption of the Taal Volcano,” said Janez Lenar?i?, the EU commissioner for crisis management.
