The U.S. government has provided Php4.4 million to assist displaced families affected by the Mayon Volcano in Albay province.

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology placed Mayon Volcano under Alert Level 3, which prompted the Provincial Government of Albay to evacuate more than 12,000 families living within the six-kilometer radius permanent danger zone.

U.S. Embassy Ambassador Philip Goldberg said, "The United States stands ready to help families cope with the challenges posed by the temporary displacement.”

U.S. Embassy Manila’s United States Agency for International Development (USAID) will provide emergency sanitation, hygiene and non-food items to families seeking temporary refuge in evacuation centers located in the municipalities of Guinobatan, Camalig and Daraga. The humanitarian assistance, which will be distributed by World Vision for USAID, will focus on improving access to safe drinking water, functioning latrines, and temporary classrooms.
