Help the evacuees from the Taal Volcano eruption!

On Sunday, 12 January, Taal volcano belched ash in a stream-driven explosion. This brought ashfall to several nearby provinces, prompting more than 30,000 residents of Batangas and Cavite to flee their homes which are now mostly blanketed in ash.

The ashfall reached areas as far north as Metro Manila and parts of Pampanga in the north. The volcano has since been spewing less ash but state volcanologists are not ruling out the possibility of a full blown eruption, keeping the warning at Alert Level 4. Level 4 means a "hazardous eruption" is possible within days or hours.

Over 30,000 have had to flee to evacuation centers to escape Taal Volcano's fury. They need basic necessities like food and toiletries. 

I am raising this fund to help the displaced families from the eruption of Taal Volcano in the Philippines.

This area is where I spent a few years of my childhood - and some of my dearest families are still living near the danger zone.

They are helping me get the funds to the evacuees.
