Philippines donates $20,000 for Mongolian disaster

The Philippines donated $20,000 (P911,500) to Mongolia, helping the country’s efforts to adjust to zud, or winters which make it difficult for livestock to find fodder.

Citing a report from the Philippine Embassy in Beijing, the Department of Foreign Affairs said the Philippines also relayed its sympathy to Mongolia for the disaster.

“Philippine Ambassador to China Francisco Benedicto handed over a check of US$20,000 to Mongolian Ambassador to China Tsedenjav Sukhbaatar lkast March 16 at the Mongolian Embassy in Beijing," the DFA said in its website.

“Zud" results in the death of large numbers of animals due to starvation and the cold.

This year’s “zud" has affected 198 counties in 19 provinces, causing the loss of thousands of livestock, the main source of livelihood of Mongolian herders.

During his call on the Mongolian Ambassador, Benedicto conveyed the sympathy of the Philippines to Mongolia on this disaster.

Earlier this year, the Mongolian government requested for international assistance through their Foreign Affairs Minister Gombojav Zandanshatar. - RJAB Jr.,
