The Mustard Seed Mission urgently opened the disaster preparedness food storage located in the Hongxiang Tribe in Renai Township, Nantou. The supplies shipping vans along the industrial road, passing through the barely passable lanes dug by the tribal residents themselves. All the way the social workers could see the roads covered by muddy mud and rocks which almost reached their knee height. When looking back at the roads they just drove through, they even found the rain had hollowed out the roads.
When the team finally arrived in Duda Village, Renai Township, which was hit hard by the disasters, they immediately provided clean water and daily necessities to affected people and worked together with youths, volunteers, and villagers to distribute the supplies. The team divided up the other supplies to villagers by car or locomotives, many residents finally felt peaceful.
An 8-year-old little girl ran forward to the supplies delivery team and left with only two bags of baby diapers. After interviewing the little girl, the social worker knew her father was working out of town, and only she, her mother, and her little baby sister were at home. The whole family was unable to buy diapers by the time they encountered the disaster. Fortunately, they could have brand-new diapers for the little baby during the difficulties because the relief team provided supplies immediately.
The relief team walked along the tiny small road into the tribe, there were towering mounds everywhere waiting to be cleared in front of each house. The social workers visited children's families receiving our children sponsorship program. When the trapped villagers saw the social workers were still delivering support under the terrible circumstances, one villager was moving, “Thank you for being here with us!” She said with tears because she was strangled with insomnia for several days and there was no clean water to drink. Now, there are instant supplies to tide over the difficulties.
