Philippine Red Cross in Taal

The Taal Volcano eruption last 12 January 2020 has left thousands of families homeless. The Philippine Red Cross since then has pitched 48 tents out of the planned 162 units for the tent city in Malainin.

Over 800 Philippine Red Cross personnel have also been mobilized to assist in the Taal operations. Major initiatives of Philippine Red Cross such as Disaster Management, Community Engagement and Accountability, Welfare Services, Health Services, Safety Services, and also WASH (a program which promotes hygiene), are continuously implemented. These ensure that the help extended go beyond relief distribution and help the community to get back on its feet.
