The Taiwan government donated US$ 200,000 on February 27 to the Philippine government for the flooding and landslides in the Davao region, which have resulted in the tragic death of over 20 Filipinos and displaced hundreds of thousands of people since early February this year. 

On behalf of the people and government of Taiwan, Representative Wallace Chow of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office (TECO) in the Philippines promptly expressed his deep condolences to Chairman and Resident Representative Silvestre H. Bello III of the Manila Economic and Cultural Office (MECO). 

TECO Representative Chow handed over the said relief fund to MECO Chairman Bello to support the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) of the Philippines in its continuous provision of essential supplies, medical assistance, and other forms of support to help the affected families rebuild their homes and return to their normal lives. 

“Taiwan’s helping hand to Filipino brothers and sisters in the Davao region during their time of dire need symbolizes a profound spirit of solidarity and friendship between our two nations,” said Representative Chow during the donation ceremony. He added: “With Taiwan’s goodwill to help and the resilient Filipino spirit, we are confident that brighter days lie ahead.”

The Taiwan government and TECO in the Philippines will continue to closely monitor developments and maintain contact with relevant Philippine government agencies to provide necessary assistance promptly.
