Notes from the Field

Taiwan Typhoon Relief Fund Established

August 19, 2009

Taiwan suffered its deadliest storm in half a century as Typhoon Morakot lashed the island for days in early August, killing hundreds and creating thousands of evacuees.

In response, Give2Asia, The Asia Foundation’s affiliate, has established a relief fund and is working with its network on the ground in Taiwan to help those affected by the storms. Give2Asia will bring together contributions to support these local groups, which will be providing immediate assistance and helping with long-term recovery. Some funds will provide for food, shelter and other emergency services; others will support longer-term rebuilding efforts.
