The typhoon aid distribution center in Sinying, Tainan
Sinying is overwhelmed with labor and there are plenty of vehicles flowing in and out. So today we are heading out to Pingtung to volunteer in the affected areas. A local friend told me:
"Got an email from Council for Hakka Affairs saying Pingtung needs a lot volunteers to help down there. They're meeting at the Pingtung County Bureau of Culture every day and transporting people to disaster areas to help out. Call 08 7365600 or 08 7365012 for more info."
and this adding new phone lines and extensions since the response has been overwhelming.
"Just got another email from 客委會: 屏東縣府文化處救災志工諮詢電話08-7365600 08-7365012，有熱心朋友想去幫忙 但反應電話一直都打不通 後來我經其他方式問到的結果
煩請改撥 [number no good] 或 08-7378821*501 或 *506"
Please donate money, above all, it is what is most needed to keep things going. Unfortunately I am out of touch and so can't tell you where.
