Brussels, July 3 (CNA) A shipment of cadaver skin donated by the Euro Tissue Bank in Amsterdam was expected to arrive in Taiwan late Friday to help Taiwan treat people who suffered severe burns in fiery explosions at a New Taipei water park on June 27.
Ger Kropman, manager of the skin bank, decided to make the donation and contacted Taiwan’s representative office in the Netherlands after learning of the tragedy on CNN, according to De Telegraaf, the country’s biggest daily morning newspaper.
