The Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) reportedly donated camping tents, sleeping mats, generators, plastic sheets, and water containers on August 2.

“May this provision boost the relief efforts of Philippine authorities and ease the burden of communities devastated by the earthquake. Japan is in solidarity with you at this difficult time. Kasama nyo kami, Pilipinas (We are with you, Philippines),” said Japanese Ambassador to the Philippines Kazuhiko Koshikawa in a separate statement.
