NEWS RELEASE

Assistance to the victims of the Taal Volcano eruption

On January 12, Taal volcano, one of the most active volcanos in the Philippines, erupted evacuating 24,000 people who were immediately affected, from the volcanic island. Close to 500,000 inhabitants within a 17km perimeter were also asked to evacuate.
