Exactly 2,859 families or 64,295 individuals affected by the Taal eruption received relief packs in 81 evacuation centers, while 5,403 persons were able to get warm meals from the soup kitchen and 663 individuals got psychological first aid as of Jan. 19, according to ABS-CBN Foundation’s Sagip Kapamilya.

Until now, ABS-CBN Foundation is still doing rounds in evacuation centers to help ease the burden of evacuees.

Helping out in the relief operations was “G Diaries” host and Bantay Bata 163 executive director Ernie Lopez.

“The way we help each other is not forced. People are openly willing. They open their hearts, they open their wallets, they give their resources. That’s the nice thing about Pinoys,” he said.

Sagip Kapamilya also showed untiring support to victims of recent calamities. Just like in Taal, the organization immediately extended a helping hand to those affected by recent typhoon Tisoy and Ursula in Visayas and Mindanao.

ABS-CBN Foundation is still accepting in-kind and cash donations for Taal evacuees.
