It is with dismay that the Brazilian Government has received the news on the passage of tropical storm Tembin through the south of the Philippines, which has left more than one hundred dead, wounded and missing. Brazil expresses its condolences to the families of the victims and its solidarity with the people and the Government of the Philippines.
To the moment, there are no records of Brazilians among the victims. The Brazilian Embassy in Manila will continue to closely monitor the situation. The Foreign Ministry's Assistance Center for Brazilian Nationals is available from Monday to Friday, from 8am to 8pm, at +55 61 2030 8803, +55 61 2030 8804 and at the email firstname.lastname@example.org.
