Taiwan Sets Up Fundraising Platform for Ukraine 內各界發起捐款 籲協助烏克蘭度難關

Groups and politicians in Taiwan are soliciting donations to help Ukrainian refugees. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is in the process of evacuating citizens from Ukraine.


Mr. Tsai, Taiwanese Student in Ukraine: “I haven't really slept in over 40 hours, or taken a real shower.”

This student says the process of being evacuated from Ukraine was "very tiring." The Ministry of Education recently helped six students and a dozen overseas compatriots get across the Polish border.

Mr. Tsai, Taiwanese Student in Ukraine: “I was in line for 10 hours at the Ukraine-Poland border. Yes. You heard right. Ten hours.”

According to Democratic Progressive Party lawmaker Wang Ting-yu, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is trying to evacuate students and overseas citizens from southern and eastern Ukraine.

Wang Ting-yu, Legislator (DPP): “The family in Kharkiv and three students were taken to southern Ukraine. Over there, there are two of our Taiwanese people waiting to be evacuated. Whichever border is safest -- Slovakia, Romania or Poland -- they will be heading that way.”

Taiwanese youths and Ukrainian nationals in Taiwan have set up a fundraising platform with an account for donations. A mask manufacturer is giving free masks for every donation.

Vincent Chao, Former Representative Office Division Head: “The consolidation of fundraising platforms can be shared with Taiwanese people so that they know how they can donate to Ukraine.”

Daria, Ukrainian National in Taiwan: “I don't know what to do. My mom keeps crying. My brother keeps crying. They are hiding in a basement. I hope everyone can help our troops.”

Deputy Legislative Speaker Tsai Chi-chang is also calling for both individuals and corporations to donate a target sum of NT$10 million to help Ukrainian refugees in Poland.

 

 

 

台灣留烏學生蔡同學說:「四十幾個小時都沒有好好睡覺,又或者是說好好洗澡什麼樣的。」

談起從烏克蘭基輔撤出的過程,蔡同學說過程相當疲憊,教育部日前緊急將蔡同學在內的6名學生與十多位台僑護送到波蘭,回憶這段路程,蔡同學印象最深的是通過邊境的最後一哩路。

台灣留烏學生蔡同學說:「烏波邊境一公里的路,排了10個小時,對10個小時,沒有聽錯。」

民進黨立委王定宇也透露,目前外交部正在緊急救援烏東與南烏的多位留學生與我國僑民。

民進黨立委王定宇表示:「是先在哈爾科夫把這個家庭跟這3位同學載好,往南烏前進,那南烏現在有2名我們的台灣人在那邊等待救援撤出,斯洛伐克、羅馬尼亞、波蘭,哪邊安全他就往哪邊去。」

多位台灣青年也與在台的烏克蘭民眾共同創設一個網路平台,讓有意捐款給烏克蘭民眾的台灣人,可以透過平台找到可以真的幫助烏克蘭的捐款帳戶,還有口罩廠商捐贈特製口罩,要送給有捐款給烏克蘭的國內民眾。

前駐美代表處政治組組長趙怡翔說明:「募款平台的一個整合,來跟大家,來跟台灣的民眾分享,說要怎麼樣的方式可以去捐贈烏克蘭。」

在台烏克蘭人DARIA說:「我真的沒辦法,一直聽我媽媽哭,我弟弟哭,他們一直躲在地下室,所以我希望大家可以幫忙我們的軍人。」

立法院副院長蔡其昌也號召多個企業與民眾,將捐出一千萬協助照顧逃往波蘭的烏克蘭難民,國內各界有志一同,展現台灣的愛心力量,力挺烏克蘭共度難關。
