When Taal Volcano erupted last Sunday, most of the general public were surprised, even though the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) have been warning us as early as March 2019. Despite the panic of the general public, many organizations were quick to arrange donation drives and rescue operations to help the victims of the Taal Eruption 2020. Check out below where you can send help:
With the Taal volcano in Batangas under Alert Level 4, at least 6,000 people living near the volcano were forced to flee their homes. Let’s help provide relief response to displaced families and affected areas. Find out how you can help below. #TaalEruption2020 #ReliefPH pic.twitter.com/JYNJSl8PLW
