We are saddened to hear about the derailed accident of Puyuma Express that occurred in Yilan County in Northeastern part of Taiwan on October 21, 2018 and we express our sincere condolences for the victims. We extend our deepest sympathies to all injured in this accident.
In this accident, the express train ran off the tracks as it traveled at a curve, resulting cars to overturn, destroying some of them, leaving a horrific tragedy. As of October 22, it was announced that 18 passengers have been killed, and 187 insured.
In response to this accident, iRushHelp has set up “2018 Taiwan Yilan County Puyuma Express Derailment Accident Assistance Program” to raise donations.
The entire amount received, with matching donation made by HEC Global (up to US$30,000, around 3,200,000 JPY) will be forwarded to “Red Cross Taiwan”.
