#ReliefPH: Help communities affected by Taal Volcano eruption

MANILA, Philippines  (3rd UPDATE) – Thousands of Filipinos living near the volcano and surrounding areas fled their homes after the Taal Volcano in Batangas started spewing kilometers-high ash Sunday afternoon, January 12.

State volcanologists raised Alert Level 4 for the volcano by Sunday night, warning that a “hazardous” eruption may occur “within hours or days.” (READ: What you should know about Taal Volcano)

Taal Volcano spewed lava fountains and triggered ashfall that spread not just in Batangas but also to other parts of the Calabarzon region, as well as to Metro Manila and Central Luzon.

Local government units in and outside of Batangas province are also seeking donations to the affected communities. 

Those affected by the Taal Volcano eruption need the following items:

Those interested in donating water are encouraged to store them in large containers since these are refillable and economical.

The Environmental Management Bureau of Calabarzon warned that donating a lot of bottled water may lead to a garbage disposal problem in the near future, especially if the eruption of the Taal Volcano and the consequent rehabilitation will take several months or years. Using large containers instead will help both the environment and the survivors.

Here are some relief initiatives to help communities affected by the Taal Volcano eruption:
