Welcome to iRushHelp.org where concerned individuals can “Rush to Help” survivors of devastating tragedies. This organization was established by HEC with our Affiliates, understanding that working hand-in-hand we can make a real difference together, especially during such critical times.
We were saddened to hear about the derailment accident of Puyuma Express that occurred in Yilan County in Northeastern part of Taiwan on October 21, 2018 and express our sincere condolences for the victims. Our prayers are with those who got injured in this accident and their families.
In this accident, the Express Train ran off the tracks as it traveled at a curve resulting some cars to overturn, majorly destroying them, which left a horrific tragedy. As of October 22, it was announced that 18 passengers have been killed, and 187 injured. At the accident site, rescue workers have been searching for survivors and provide assistance in recovery efforts, and those injured have been being treated.
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 will be forwarded to the non-profit organization “Red Cross Taiwan” which is engaged in disaster and accident support activities inside and outside of Taiwan for restructuring efforts, to support those affected by this accident.
