The latest quakes in Hualien got me wondering, where can non-Taiwanese citizens contribute to help out when disasters strike, with their own time and hands, or monetarily?
I saw an article like this one http://www.taipeitimes.com/News/taiwan/archives/2018/02/08/2003687293 talking of companies donating, but I’m amazed that there’s no explicit mention of who or what are they donating to, nor a clear call to action to readers on how to also contribute to presumably government-led efforts. I see the Red Cross has a presence here (http://www.redcross.org.tw/english/index.jsp), but they don’t seem that big, and must be coordinating with the government somehow. Their donation page doesn’t have any project-specific donation option if you want to help out say a recent recovery effort either. I did stumble upon this org http://www.taiwanaid.org/en/member/410 from another article (although I almost missed it again due to no particular highlighting of the info), but the website is not foreigner-friendly, nor do they mention anything special in their news.
All that said, what have people done in the past, and is there a good central place to go to for more info for future efforts?
