On February 6, 2018, a 6.4 magnitude earthquake hit Hualien, a large eastern city of Taiwan. The strong earthquake and the following strong aftershock left people in terror. Buildings lean and roads crack, and the highway locked down due to security concerns. At that time, residents in the affected area suffered not only from property lost but psychological impact as well.
With a strong commitment to emergency relief, World Vision immediately sent 30 social workers to the damaged areas - including Hualien City and other affected towns - to assess the degree of damage and establish Children Friendly Center for affected households.
