Funds Sought to Aid Victims of Typhoon Morakot

Taipei, Taiwan - UPF-Taiwan is seeking donations to provide immediate relief for people in areas devastated by typhoon Morakot, which struck on August 9 and dumped 83 inches of rain (over 2.1 m) on parts of the island. This unleashed the worst flooding there in half a century.

The Taiwanese government has asked for international assistance in rescuing stranded villagers and relief work to aid displaced and homeless persons. Buildings collapsed in the floodwater, and mudslides buried everything in their paths. More than 650 deaths were reported by August 23.

UPF-Taiwan has initiated a relief project by Ambassadors for Peace for the reconstruction of two devastated hill tribe villages in the worst affected areas: Haocha Village in Pingtung County and Maolin Village in Kaohsiung County. They will help the victims of these two villages rebuild their homes and provide psychological counseling for those in need.

The fundraising campaign is part of an ongoing service project. The people of Taiwan will feel greatly encouraged by the contributions of caring people around the world.

Donations may be sent to:

Account Name: Interreligious and International Federation for World Peace-R.O.C.
Bank Address: No. 245, Section 3, Roosevelt Road, Taipei, Taiwan, R.O.C.

UPF-Taiwan will directly hand the money to the victims through its AFP Kaohsiung Branch, which is closest to the disaster area.
