Dharma Drum Mountain Social Welfare & Charity Foundation Provides Wulai and Sanxia with Relief Supplies after Typhoon.

Severe landslides caused by Typhoon Soudelor bought untold suffering and isolation to the residents of Wulai (烏來) and Sansia (三峽) region in Taiwan. In an effort to lessen the suffering of these residents, Ven. Guo-Qi, Secretary General of Dharma Drum Mountain Social Welfare & Charity Foundation (DDMSWCF) led volunteers and staff to immediately transport emergency supplies such as instant noodles, water, canned food and lighting equipment to Wulai Guishan Activity Center and Sanxia District Office late into the night of August 10 as well as at the break of dawn the next day. Ven. Guo-Qi expressed his gratitude to the relief workers of the emergency operation centers who worked tirelessly.

There are more than two thousand people trapped in the Wulai region and another six hundred in Sanxia Youmu Village. These residents are in dire need of food and lighting equipment as water and power supply were cut off. After ascertaining the needs of these residents with the Social Welfare Department of New Taipei City Government and Sanxia District Office, DDMSWCF mobilized relief workers and volunteers to transport the required supplies. In addition, volunteers of DDMFSWCF are on standby to offer necessary assistance so that victims could go through this challenging period with peace of mind.
