South Korea commits P10 million for Taal eruption victims
South Korea commited $200,000 (P10 million) for victims of the Taal Volcano eruption.
"Through the swift provision of relief goods to those who are in evacuation centers due to the volcanic eruption, we hope this aid will contribute to the stabilization of the victims' lives," South Korea's Ministry of Foreign Affairs was quoted as saying by Yonhap News Agency.
According to the state media, the assistance will be coursed through the Philippine Red Cross and is seen to help some 45,000 Filipinos affected by the Taal Volcano unrest.
Taal Volcano erupted on Sunday, blasting steam and ash into the sky and forcing people to flee from their homes and seek refuge in the nearest evacuation centers.

Of this number, a total of 12,877 or 52,286 individuals are taking temporary shelter in 257 evacuation centers, said the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council.
