After 10 days, the rescue team successfully came back to Taiwan with no causalty. Leader Liu also mentioned that the residents there were all very kind and helpful to them. Even though they have many family members missing, they were still very eager to help the team perform the resuce. 

We truly appreciate all the dedication and hard work of the International Headquarters S.A.R, Taiwan. They not only serve as a rescue team, but also show the world again how Taiwan can help in regarding internatoinal development. TaiwanAid will continue to support these iNGOs and together we can make the world a better place to live.
