The Korean people and the Government of
the Republic of Korea are deeply saddened by the news of hardship Filipinos are
going through, including massive number of casualties and injuries, as the
typhoon Mangkhut/Ompong hit the Philippines recently.
We are confident that the people of the
Philippines, under the leadership of President Rodrigo Duterte, will recover
from the damages soon. To help relieve the suffering of the Filipino
communities from the typhoon damages, the Government of the Republic of Korea
has decided to provide the Philippines with humanitarian aid of 300,000 US
dollar through the Philippines Red Cross.
Again, the Korean people and the
Government of the Republic of Korea send their sincere condolences to the
families of the victims to Mangkhut/Ompong and pray for the Philippine’s
earliest possible recovery from the tragedy.
