Fundraising Campaign for Taal Volcano Victims

When Taal volcano, the most active volcano in the Philippines,  erupted… Many Filipinos were displaced and lost their livelihood. But the Filipino-American community in the Hampton Roads area, of whom some are our clients, responded quickly to help the victims. Their compassionate initiative for a fundraising campaign inspired many to support this charitable cause, including us at Ramiscal Equitan Advisors. We were also moved by the Bayanihan Spirit or the Filipino tradition of helping one another… evidently shining through in this time of crisis. This initiative by the Filipino-American community resonates with our mandate as articulated in our vision and shared values. We are truly humbled to be part of this unifying effort in helping our brothers and sisters in the Philippines who are in need.
