Between August 21st and 25th, representatives of Taiwan Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundation went to the Micronesia state of Chuuk and donated 900 kilograms of medical equipments and supplies to the state hospital there and held several free clinics on neighboring islands.
Continuing drought in the Federated States of Micronesia are making it difficult for several outlying atolls to maintain an adequate supply of potable water.
The atolls are in the states of Chuuk, Pohnpei and Yap and local officials have proposed that Sorol atoll be added to the list of formally declared disaster areas.
