A year since the Taal volcano eruption in the Philippines, the island it is situated on remains a ghost town. The government has banned former residents from returning to the area because of the risks. Some 50 families are still living in makeshift tents. They are desperate to go back to the island and resume their normal lives.

Taal spewed ash and lava on January 12, 2020, triggering a series of earthquakes and aftershocks in the days that followed. The eruption forced more than 100,000 people from their homes by the end of January last year.

China 🇨🇳 illegal occupation!
The international law is very clear on the South China Sea:
– parts of it belong to ASEAN countries including the Philippines 🇵🇭
– the rest of it is the international water
– no part of it belongs to China 🇨🇳

The Philippines capital is one of the most overpopulated places on earth. There are few other areas where so many people live so closely together: On average there are 41,282 people per square kilometre, but in some slum regions there are as many as 88,000 people living per square kilometre.~

Living place is becoming increasingly satuarated. This overcrowding is causing a range of problems such as pollution, deforestation, loss of wildlife, unemployment, malnutrition, clean drinking water shortages, and general poverty. ~

Every day, 95 children in the Philippines die from malnutrition. Twenty-seven out of 1,000 Filipino children do not get past their fifth birthday. A third of Filipino children are stunted, or too short for their age. Stunting after 2 years of age can be permanent, irreversible and even fatal. According to the United Nations Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF).
