MANILA- President Rodrigo Duterte will visit more Filipinos who fled the eruption of Taal Volcano on Monday, his former aide Sen. Christopher “Bong” Go said Thursday.

Duterte will check on the condition of evacuees again following an initial visit to some 3,000 displaced in Batangas City last Tuesday.

"Gusto niya makita kalagayan nila and bring help,” Go told ABS-CBN News.

(He wants to see their situation and bring help.)

The President’s staff however has yet to decide on the evacuation site that Duterte would visit, Go said.

Earlier this week, the President checked on over 3,000 evacuees in Batangas City and gave out relief goods.
