This is a fundraising call to help support my family who have been evacuated and displaced due to the eruption of the Taal Volcano.

Last Sunday on the 12th January 2020, the Taal Volcano located in the heart of Batangas province, Philippines erupted. Heavy ash fall has since been falling on the nearby towns and the alert level was immediately raised to level 4 with a 14km radius danger zone declared. The government advised residents to evacuate immediately.

Unfortunately, my family and relatives (64 people including 4 babies) live within this 14km danger zone. Thankfully they were able to pack some basic needs and leave before the volcano started spewing ash and erupting.

Up to the day of writing this, our hometown is still in lockdown and volcanic earthquakes are still being recorded. We don't know how long they will need to stay away from their home, jobs and schooling. After days of ash fall and earthquakes my family and relatives are uncertain if their business (a Plant Nursery) and home have even survived.

Due to their size my family and relatives have had to split into two groups in order to seek shelter. One group is staying with another family in a three bedroom apartment in Manila and the rest are staying with relatives in a town in Batangas, just a little bit farther than the 14km danger zone.

I'm not comfortable asking for money but, I am humbly seeking help in raising funds for my family and relatives in the Philippines. With your support, my family will be able to be continuously safe, buy clean drinking water and food, stay away from the danger and get back on their feet after this disaster.

I would like to thank you in advance for any help you can provide, no amount is too small.

Julie Anne Quintos' involvement (page creator)

I’m trying to raise funds to help my parents, siblings, nephews, uncles, aunts, and cousins with their daily expenses while they are still in evacuation.

Use of funds

The collected funds will be used to to buy extra clothes, safe drinking water, food, masks, milk for the babies and medicine. If the target amount is exceeded, the remaining amount will be used to fix any damage to their houses and help them start again.
