Hi Everyone! I am Rea, a resident from Laurel, Batangas, Philippines and currently working as Business Operations Analyst for Archer PS under RSA at Dell Global BV (Manila - Philippines).
Last January 12, 2020, Taal Volcano Eruption struck the people around the volcano and nearby areas. Since then, we immediately evacuated our home and moved to a safer place as we are included within the 14-km radius hazard zone. While the volcano remains at alert level-4 (out of 5), our town was put in total lockdown as preemptive measure for possible major volcanic eruption. Food, water, and clothes has been our major necessity. With the help of our relatives together with the kind-hearted and God-sent people, we managed to pull through for the past two-weeks.
Last January 26, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) downgraded the status of Taal Volcano to Alert Level 3. With this, lockdown order was partially lifted and we are able to visit our hometown. Being on alert level-3, imminent danger is still possible, eruption can still occur in hours or days but the probability is just much lower than level 4.
This will be a tough and long battle for us to recover since my family’s source of livelihood was severely affected (fishes in our fish cage died as shown in the video) and rehabilitation might take few months or longer. We are humbly asking for your assistance which will be used to start over. We will appreciate every cent of your donation. You have no idea how much it means to us to have your support.
Thank you in advance for your help! God Bless you all!
