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.

Additionally, LCIF has awarded a US$100,000 Major Catastrophe Grant for immediate relief or long-term reconstruction.
