Summary

Provide assistance to victims of Typhoon Morakot, which struck Taiwan August 7. At least 123 were killed, hundreds are still unaccounted for, and thousands were displaced

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The Fund is working with the Tzu Chi Foundation to provide relief to victims and survivors of the Typhoon and resulting mudslides.

How will this project solve this problem?

Provide hot meals, water, basic cooking equipment, and emergency shelter to survivors; help in the recovery effort and rebuilding of houses damaged or destroyed in the mudslide.

Potential Long Term Impact

Tzu Chi will help poverty-stricken survivors rebuild homes and provide long term financial assistance. Tzu Chi will also help rebuild schools and provide tuition assistance, and continue to provide emotional and spiritual care to affected residents.
