in a few days there will be 30 years to a terrible earthquake in Armenia. On December 7, 1988, the northern part of the country was destroyed in half a minute. Armenia lost 25,000 dead and 40% of its industrial potential. The city of Spitak and 58 villages were completely destroyed. In the first time for many years, the USSR Post has issued stamps with additional price to help victims.



all the Soviet republics sent detachments of rescuers and builders for the restoration of the republic. 111 countries of the world sent doctors, products and medicines and medical equipment

This 1999 stamp of Bolivia honors the Bolivian Red Cross and the Geneva Conventions of 1949. Red Cross trucks are shown delivering aide to the earthquake victims of Aiquile, Bolivia. The earthquake struck on May 22, 1998.

From Wikipedia, "This strike-slip earthquake had a moment magnitude of 6.6 and a maximum Mercalli intensity of VII (severe). Damage was severe, with at least 95 deaths, 50-150 injured , and 6900 homeless."

From nytimes.com, "80 percent of the homes in Aiquile were destroyed. The roof of the Aiquile hospital caved in and a landslide blocked access to the town. Radio reports from nearby Totora indicated that the city was largely destroyed."

On November 16, 1992 the Philippines issued 5 postal tax stamps to aid those affected by the Mt. Pinatubo eruptions of June 1991. The following information is quoted from Philatelic Phillipine Philatelic Journal, vol.XXX no.2, second quarter of 2008, page 6.

"As part of the nationwide campaign to aid the victims, in November 1992 Pres. Ramos issued Proclamations 64 and 64A that placed a surcharge on all types of mail (25c per domestic mail & 1 peso per international item) to operate from 16 November 1992 to 28 February 1993 - 105 days."

However, a businessman in Manila sued the government and the tax was only effective until Feb. 1, 1993.

Again, from the Phillipine Philatelic Journal. "Subsequently, the stamps were reissued on June 14, 1993 and used for regular postage until exhausted."

Here is the 25s stamp. I don't have the four 1 peso stamps which are the same format and similar in design.
