How to help
1. If you want to send goods to charities currently carrying out operations in the south, please contact the charities first to ask whether they still need supplies before you send them. Many charities said they have had enough donated supplies, but many flood victims are in dire need of cash to purchase things they need and to move around. To find how to help or donate or to learn more about the ongoing developments of the relief/recovery efforts, please check the following websites (Ann said they are quickly updated, though updates on the English website are slower than those on the Mandarin website):
2. Those who would like to go down to the south to help the recovery efforts can apply for free High Speed Rail seats.

But the latest needs or requirements can be found at the Mandarin website. :D
