Once a source of beauty now a source of destruction. The eruption of Taal volcano in Southern Luzon, Philippines has been causing difficulties to the community surrounding it for weeks, starting January 12, displacing thousands of families and disrupting their normal living. Through its outreach fund and additional contributions from it's employees, the MicroEnsure Philippines team joined together in supporting the victims of the Taaleruption. The MicroEnsure employees donated to the Philippine Red Cross and Taytay sa Kauswagan Inc. (TSKI), two organizations that are conducting relief operations on the ground. TSKI has branches and clients in the affected areas as well, and the donations made would greatly help them in their relief operations. This team’s initiative is a manifestation of its core tag-line #IAMHOPE which stands for “I Am MicroEnsure Helping Other People Every day” – a reminder to always lend a hand not only to their clients and partners but most especially to the people around them who are in need.
