FHI's Korea partner office is providing
relief for people affected by Typhoon Maemi, which struck southern Korea
on September 12.
A cash grant will aid a feeding centre in the city of Masan. This site will be updated soon with more details on the feeding centre's activities.
According to government estimates, as of September 16 the typhoon had claimed 104 lives. 25,000 people have evacuated their homes and 7,000 were living in temporary shelters. Additionally the storm flooded 16,000 hectares of farmland and sank myriad ships and fishing boats.
If you wish to provide financial support for this effort please contact Korea FHI or the FHI partner office nearest you.
