Li Ka-shing, Hong Kong's richest businessman, decided to donate 100 million NTD in the name of the Li Ka Shing Foundation for emergency disaster-relief in South Taiwan severely damaged by Typhoon Morakot.

According to Taiwan-based Nownews, Taiwan's Red Cross Society announced that Li was deeply saddened by the damage caused to South Taiwan by Typhoon Morakot, and he hoped that people in disaster-hit areas would be able to recover from their difficulties as soon as possible.

After the August 8 flood severely damaged South Taiwan, the local government actively carried out rescue operations, but the death toll continues to rise. On the morning of August 13, Taiwan's Emergency Operation Center released the latest casualty statistics, which do not cover the wiped-out village of Kobayashi in Chiahsien town, Kaohsiung. So far 108 Taiwanese have died, 62 are missing and 14 are injured.
