In the wake of the devastating 6.4 magnitude quake that struck the island of Taiwan, IsraAID staff on the ground conducted a rapid needs assessment in the affected area in Tainan, in southern Taiwan. The team joined Taiwanese professionals and assisted them in their relief efforts to support the families affected by the quake. IsraAID’s psychosocial team met with the families of those who are still unaccounted for as they struggle between hope and despair, all while the death toll continues to rise.

Government officials and local agencies have expressed a strong interest in learning from IsraAID and receiving long-term training and supervision in the field of trauma care. IsraAID will launch a long-term initiative in Taiwan to support the families affected by the disaster and to build the capacity of the local government and agencies to mitigate the current disaster, as well as to prepare them for future crises.
