Taiwan donates hurricane relief funds to Caribbean allies, extends condolences to India

Taiwan is donating US$200,000 to St. Vincent and the Grenadines and US$100,000 to St. Lucia in the wake of Hurricane Beryl, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs July 3.

The storm hit the Caribbean June 30 and caused widespread devastation, damaging houses, schools and critical infrastructure as well as disrupting communication, water and electricity systems. Taiwan’s two allies were severely affected.

It is hoped the disaster relief funds will help the people return to their normal lives as soon as possible, the MOFA said.

The ministry also extended condolences to India on casualties that occurred during a religious gathering July 2 in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh. The MOFA requested that Manharsinh Yadav, director general of India Taipei Association, and staff members at the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in India convey Taiwan’s concern to the Indian government on its behalf.
