Lions Clubs International Foundation Awards US$190,000 for Flooding Relief in Taiwan

More than 83 inches of rain from Typhoon Morakot fell across Taiwan, causing massive flooding and making immediate relief efforts difficult. As of August 17, 300 are feared dead and many remain stranded. Most of the casualties are in hardest-hit Kaohsiung County.

Lions are responding, bringing help to those who need it most. Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) has awarded nine emergency grants of US$10,000 each, totaling US$90,000 to nine districts for Lions to provide immediate relief and purchase necessary provisions. Additionally, LCIF has awarded a US$100,000 Major Catastrophe Grant for immediate relief or long-term reconstruction.
