Taipei, Oct. 7 (CNA) The Ministry of Foreign Affairs said Friday that Taiwan has donated US$200,000 to Haiti to help with relief efforts in the Caribbean country, which has been battered by a powerful hurricane that has left hundreds dead and about 15,000 people displaced.

The ministry said the government made the donation in the wake of Hurricane Matthew, which slashed Haiti from Oct. 3-5, to help with the relief efforts.

Taiwan's embassy in Haiti has also expressed the country's heartfelt sympathy to the Haitian government, the ministry said.

It noted that all Taiwanese nationals living in Haiti have been reported safe and sound.

The storm has severely damaged Haiti -- a country with a population of about 10.8 million, bringing down trees, flooding many areas and destroying many homes. The southern part of the country was the hardest hit, according to foreign reports.

The death toll has reached more than 300, foreign media reported.

After pounding Haiti, the storm was barreling up the coastline of the U.S. state of Florida. (Courtesy of CNA)
