VIDES Philippines staff and volunteers joined the relief operations led by the FMA Provincial House for the victims of the Taal Volcano eruption last 23 January 2020. They were delegated to go to the Parish of San Lorenzo Ruiz in Dagatan, Taysan Batangas to meet 97 families who evacuated from their towns affected by the recent Taal eruption. They met each of the families in their respective foster homes and some in small barangay evacuation centers located in five different barangays for the intake interview and the distribution of food packs.
