CCC’s Statement on Typhoon Morakot in Taiwan

The Chinese Culture Center of San Francisco would like to express our deepest condolences to the victims and families of the typhoon victims in Taiwan.

We ask supporters of the Chinese Culture Center and everyone in the Bay Area to help with our efforts to bring awareness and resources to the Taiwan typhoon relief efforts. According to current news reports, 136 people have been confirmed dead in Taiwan, 386 are missing, 45 are injured, and 523 people are buried under mudslides in two villages.

CCC is partnering with organizations to assist in fundraising efforts with relief agencies to support these families and victims of the Typhoon Morakot in Taiwan. We make these resources available on our website for those wishing to donate to this cause.

As the mission of CCC is to preserve, promote, and influence Chinese and Chinese-American art and culture, please help us bring relief to those in Taiwan in need and going through great difficulties as a result of personal and property loss.
