E-mail Print PDF
Early this morning, 7/9, a disaster relief team of the Tzu Chi Foundation set out to survey the damage from Typhoon Nepartak. 

On July 6, the foundation set up a central relief coordination center in Hualien, its headquarters, and regional relief coordination centers around Taiwan. Volunteers prepared relief supplies, visited care recipients, and provided foldable beds and food for evacuees. 

At 5:50 a.m. on Friday July 8, Typhoon Nepartak made landfall at Taitung's Taimali township, on the southeast coast of Taiwan, bringing torrential rain and strong winds. 

At six o’clock on July 9, a Tzu Chi relief team, including six Dharma Masters from the Jing Si Abode, foundation staff and experienced volunteers, left Hualien for Taitung. They joined local Tzu Chi volunteers to conduct a survey of the disaster. They will visit affected families door-to-door and learn about their needs. 

Tzu Chi volunteers in other parts of Taiwan also began relief efforts.
