Taiwan allocates $100,000 aid to Mongolia in dzud relief efforts

AKIPRESS.COM - Taiwan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Tuesday announced a donation of $100,000 to assist with disaster relief in blizzard-hit Mongolia, Focus Taiwan reports.

The Foreign Ministry said that half of the pledged donation would be allocated to the Mongolian Red Cross Society, the largest humanitarian organization in Mongolia, and the half to Caritas Mongolia under the Holy See.

Head of the Department of West Asian and African Affairs Anthony Ho visited the Ulaanbaatar Trade and Economic Representative Office in Taipei earlier on Tuesday to meet with the Mongolian representative to Taiwan Gankhuyag Tumurbaatar.

Pledging the donation on behalf of Taipei, Ho said that Taiwan's government and people would like to extend a helping hand to Mongolia as the country deals with its most serious blizzards in decades.

It is hoped that the recovery and rebuilding work from the snowstorms, which have engulfed Mongolia since February, will proceed smoothly so that those affected can return to their normal lives as soon as possible, the Ministry said.

The Mongolian side thanked Taiwan and its people for the aid.
