CITY OF ILAGAN, Philippines — Students and teachers made 2,000 reusable facemasks and baked 5,000 cookies for evacuees of the Taal Volcano eruption.

“We made reusable facemasks which they can wash and wear again,” said Edwin Madarang, superintendent of the Technical Education Skills Development Authority-Isabela School of Arts and Trades.


The bread and pastries were expected to last for a week “so the goodies will not expire before it will reach the evacuees,” he said on Saturday. The evacuees are expected to receive the masks and cookies on Saturday, Jan. 18.

Earlier on Friday, Jan. 17, 1,000 more sacks of rice were sent by the Isabela provincial government to Batangas and Cavite, augmenting an initial 1,000 rice sacks sent to the victims of the Taal Volcano eruption, said Isabela Governor Rodolfo Albano III.
