PRESS RELEASE: PHLPost distributes PRC cash assistance to Taal Volcano evacueesDate Posted: June 30, 2020
Victims of Taal volcano eruption in nearby Agoncillo and Lemery towns in Batangas Province received cash assistance from the Philippine Red Cross (PRC) in partnership with PHLPost Area 4.
PHLPost Area 4 Director Gilbert Javier offered its Cash Pay-out services to facilitate the immediate distribution of PRC relief assistance especially in far-flung areas hardest hit by volcanic eruption.
“We are happy that PRC is extending its assistance in different localities in Batangas. It feels good that inspite of the pandemic crisis besetting the country and the world, these partnership between NGO’s continue even during these difficult times”, said Director Javier.
He added that, with the dedication of PHLPost employees, the postal service can bridge the gap to deliver assistance extended by generous agencies. Thousands of Filipinos living near the volcano and surrounding areas fled their homes during the eruption which happened early this year.
PHLPost ensures that funds are properly dispensed, using the PRC system platform for quick and secure disbursement of fund. It cuts down the time of registration and the delivery time for assistance to beneficiaries.
The Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLPost) is now strengthening its partnership with government and private institutions not only to deliver mail services, parcels and various goods but also to serve as the catalyst towards alleviating the economic conditions of the people in the countryside.
