Summary

Update: After a series of magnitude 6 earthquakes that hit the Philippines, another disaster happened yesterday (January 12, 2020): a Level 5 volcanic eruption of the 30-year dormant Taal Volcano in the northern part of the country, Luzon. As of the time of this update, over 40,000 evacuees, or roughly, 10,000 families are moved from their residences to the evacuation centers. Children's Joy Foundation, once again, is carrying out relief operations in the affected region.

Challenge

Since the 1977 eruption, the "smallest" volcano in the country has been dormant. It is currently surrounded by a lake in Luzon. Over the years, a number of city developments encouraged tourism and migration which resulted to over 10 times growth in the residents of the area. However, what most of the people think as the "smallest" volcano is actually quite a large one. In this Google Map link, the surrounding lake is actually the crater of the volcano. http://bit.ly/taal-volcano

Solution

At this very moment, a number of agencies and institutions all over the country is already sending help to the nearby towns (17km-radius) and its affected families. This GlobalGiving project, updated from the recently successful (and still ongoing) ECD initiatives for the earthquake victims in Mindanao, will now focus on the fleeing families from the still erupting volcano. At around 1PM earlier this afternoon, NDRRMC issued an early warning among residents of impending tsunami and earthquakes

Long-Term Impact

Children's Joy Foundation's thrust in promoting Early Childhood Development (ECD) among children will contribute and help the children and youth recover from this traumatic experience. A volcanic eruption doesn't end when the volcano stops erupting. Unfortunately, the ashfall damages, the evacuated residences, and the distressing experience on the lives of the evacuees will need attention as well.
