Taipei, Sept. 13 (CNA) American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) Director Kin Moy used Facebook Wednesday to thank the people of Taiwan for the generous aid donated to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey.

Moy used the idiom "a friend in need is a friend indeed" when thanking Taiwan for its help.

"I want to thank the people of Taiwan for their generous aid to the people of the United States to help them recover from Hurricane Harvey. Taiwan has a long record of helping friends in times of need, and this support will go a long way toward helping the victims of the storm," he wrote.

Moy also pointed out that "I also saw on our Facebook that many of our friends expressed interest in helping residents in the affected area. We appreciate those kind thoughts."

He finished his post with: "The people hit by Hurricane Harvey know that they are not alone as they begin the tough road of recovery."

Taiwan was in the forefront of donors and swiftly announced donations totaling US$800,000 to relief efforts.

A ceremony for the donation handover was held Tuesday at the American Red Cross headquarters in Washington, D.C., with Stanley Kao, representative of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office, presenting a US$500,000 cheque.

Kao said the remaining US$300,000 will be donated directly to Houston's disaster relief efforts.

The managing director of the Washington Office of AIT, John J. Norris Jr., also expressed his gratitude for the contribution.
