Following the hazardous eruption and spewing of ashes by the Taal volcano on Sunday, organizations and government agencies started calling for donations to help evacuees who fled away from their homes.

The province was also placed under a state of calamity. Greatly affected towns include Talisay, Laurel, Agoncillo, and San Nicolas.

According to the Batangas local government, about 16,000 residents evacuated away from the danger zone and temporarily seek refuge in centers located at Bauan, San Pascual, Padre Garcia, and Lipa. 

Meanwhile, the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council Chairman Delfin Lorenzana said there are 10,751 affected persons in their list, including residents who were affected by the ash-fall, namely, all 24 municipalities of Batangas, Cavite Province, and Tagaytay.

The main items needed by those affected residents and evacuees include N95 masks, ready-to-eat food, water, cash, medicine, mats & blankets, and hygiene kits. Aside from the relief goods and cash assistance, volunteers for repacking food and relief items are also needed.
