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
The Fund is working with the Tzu Chi Foundation to provide relief to victims and survivors of the Typhoon and resulting mudslides.
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.
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.
"We ran out of our house before the mudslide washed it away. For one day and night we had no rice, no water and our clothes were all wet. No one came to help us until a day later." - Chih Shi-li, age 62, Resident, Chishan, Taiwan
