MASHAV donated two skin graft meshers to Taipei hospitals to treat more than 400 victims who remain hospitalized following the severe water park explosion last June.
Close to 500 people suffered burns when an explosion ripped through a Taipei water park, after organizers sprayed colored powder on the crowds and it accidentally ignited.
After learning from Taiwan’s Ministry of Health and Welfare that more than 400 victims of the explosion remain hospitalized and that over 200 of them are in serious condition and are in need of skin grafts, the State of Israel through MASHAV organized the donation of two devises with the assistance of Tel Aviv’s Sourasky Medical Center Hospital’s Burns Unit.
Israel’s representative to Taiwan, Simona Halperin, delivered the medical aid to Mackay Memorial Hospital and to Tri-Service General Hospital in Taipei.

Skin graft meshers are used to make skin for grafting into a mesh or net-like form which is then grafted into the patient’s injury.
