Manila is donating P2.5 million to five Batangas towns affected by the eruption of Taal Volcano.

Members of the Manila City Council passed Resultion No. 1 series of 2020 authorizing the release of P500,000 for each of the following municipalities:

Talisay, Batangas
Taal, Batangas
Agoncillo, Batangas
Lemery, Batangas
Laurel, Batangas

According to the City Council resolution, the funds were sourced from the city's local disaster risk reduction and management fund.

"The City Council of Manila saw the urgency to extend financial assistance to the municipalities, particularly the top 5 most affected determined upon the recommendation of the National or Regional Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council," it said.

In a statement, Manila City Mayor Francisco "Isko Moreno" Domagoso thanked Vice Mayor Honey Lacuna-Pangan, Majority Floor Leader Joel Chua and all members of the City Council who granted his request to turn over financial assistance to these municipalities.

"Nagpapasalamat po ako dahil tayong mga Batang Maynila ay nagkakaisa para matulungan ang ating mga kapwa Pilipino na dumaranas ngayon ng matinding pagsubok dulot ng pagsabog ng Bulkang Taal," Domagoso said.

"Patuloy po sana tayong manalig sa Poong Maykapal na mailagay sa kaayusan ang mga nasalanta pati na rin ang kanilang kinalalagyan," he added.
