Challenge

The April 3 earthquake, the most significant since the 921 earthquake, has left Hualien in ruins-collapsing homes, disrupting lives, and creating an urgent need for shelter, supplies, and support. The disaster has severely affected vulnerable populations, including children and the elderly, exacerbating the challenges faced by these communities in achieving normalcy.

Solution

MSM has swiftly acted in coordination with local authorities to provide emergency relief and assess the safety of affected buildings. Through the "Community Service Network", MSM is delivering essential supplies, financial aid, and shelter while planning for the recovery phase. Efforts include temporary housing, educational support for affected children, and coordinating resources for the restoration of damaged homes, ensuring families return to safe living conditions.

Long-Term Impact

MSM's holistic approach aims not just to address immediate needs but to foster long-term resilience and self-sufficiency among affected communities. By repairing homes, supporting education, and providing psychosocial support, MSM helps rebuild lives and communities stronger than before. The project will empower individuals and families to overcome the earthquake's impacts, promoting sustainable development and community solidarity.
