The 7.2 magnitude earthquake that hit Bohol, Cebu and other adjacent provinces on 15 October 2013 caused so much damage to many people in the affected areas. The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) reported that 156 people died, 374 were injured, while 22 are still missing. The total cost of damage is PHP75.15 million, including the 2,066 houses, 20 bridges and 4 roads that were destroyed.
Your donations for the affected residents would mean a lot. The Embassy, however, encourages monetary donations, as it is the most flexible, given the accessibility concerns in the affected areas.
