The Republic of Korea has pledged to send USD200,000 to the Philippines as humanitarian assistance following the magnitude 7 earthquake that hit Abra province and neighboring areas on July 27, according to a report by Philippine News Agency.

In a Facebook post on Monday, the Korean Embassy extended its sympathies to the Filipinos affected by the earthquake and said the aid would help those in need to “overcome the challenges and difficulties” following the disaster.

“Korea continues to work closely with the Philippine Government and humanitarian partners to support the response and recovery efforts,” the embassy said.


To date, several countries have sent aid to the Philippines including the Chinese government through PHP10 million worth of emergency supplies, the United States through 3,000 shelter-grade tarpaulins, the Japanese government through emergency relief goods and equipment, and the European Union through the use of its Copernicus satellite to produce maps of disaster areas.

Earlier, the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council said the earthquake resulted in an estimated PHP704.49 million worth of damage to infrastructure, with the death toll at 10, and injured persons at 394.
