The Caritas Network is on the ground in Quezon Province in the Philippines following a series of volcanic eruptions which have the potential to affect half a million people, according to United Nations.

The eruption of the Taal volcano in Quezon Province on January 12th buried neighbouring towns, like that of Calauit, in thick ash. Houses, farms and livestock were destroyed.

A total of 9,527 families and 40,752 persons are affected in the Batangas and Cavite region, where the volcano erupted. A total of 8,896 persons are taking shelter in 198 evacuation centers, according to latest reports.

Authorities are continuing to evacuate people living within a 14-kilometre radius of the erupting Taal volcano, with over 38,000 people already having taken shelter.

The Caritas Network, including NASSA/Caritas Philippines, is working with the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council of the Philippines, who are pre-positioning:

  • Medical teams and staff in regional offices
  • Medical kits including drugs and treatments
  • Face masks to ease the inhalation of toxic fumes

The Caritas network will continue monitoring this emergency to supply the food, water and emergency housing support, including temporary shelter like tents, which may be necessary on a large scale.

Immediate needs also include hygiene kits, cleaning materials like industrial style pressure washers, foldable beds, mats, generator sets, emergency lamps and flashlights.

    “Great Mother is Real... I am Aisha Kun and i want to testify about Great Mother how she cured me of hiv aids. I was diagnosed of this disease some time ago and i was worried. when i was searching the internet looking for a cure, i came across some testimonies of Great Mother how she has helped a lot of people and i decided to contact her on her info and explained to her. She laughed and told me that she will help me and i was surprised. She sent me the cure and it was a spiritual holy oil and water which is more than a medicine. She directed me on how to take it and i did. I took the cure for 3 weeks and i went to the doctor for check up and to my greatest surprise the disease was no longer in my system. I am so glad and i want to thank Great Mother for helping me. Contact her now on her email:  Greatmotherofsolutiontemple1@yahoo.com  you can also reach her on her whatsapp number  +17025514367.
