Challenge

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

Solution

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.

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.
