On behalf of the staff of TaiwaneseAmerican.org, our hearts go out to the people of Haiti in the immediate aftermath of January 12th’s 7.0 magnitude earthquake. It has caused mass devastation and the death tolls are still unknown.
Haiti may seem a world away, but keep in mind that it is one of 23 nations that have diplomatic ties to Taiwan. We hope you might consider donating to support relief efforts.
In March 2008, our Taiwanese American medical association (NATMA) was on a medical mission to give free care to the people of Haiti. We anticipate that NATMA will be rallying efforts once again. I have been informed that this is currently in progress. In support, any straight donations made to TaiwaneseAmerican.org between Jan 13-17 will be forwarded in full to NATMA.

Look for the donation bar on the right side of this webpage.
