To reinforce the desk and enable victims and other distressed Filipinos staying outside the DC area to reach the Embassy, the diplomatic mission set up a 24/7, joint VAW and Assistance-to-Nationals (ATN) hotline (mobile no. +1-202-769-8049).

The hotline is separate from the existing 24/7 duty phone (mobile number +1-202-368-2767), which receives and responds to queries on consular matters and other embassy services as well as information on the Philippines.
