PHILIPPINES — The local government of Tagaytay is appealing for donations of hygiene kits and cleaning supplies for its evacuation centers.
Tagaytay City Mayor Agnes Delgado-Tolentino says they are preparing for an extended stay in evacuation centers of residents affected by Taal volcano’s restiveness.
As of last Friday, more than 6,000 evacuees remain in three evacuation centers in Tagaytay city.
“Meron kaming itinalagang pickup points na anim na lugar para sa aming constituents…. pag nagkita na sila dun sa anim na yun, may pagdadalhan sa kanila na tatlong places lang.”
