Taipei, July 8 (CNA) The New Taipei government may use some of the donations it has received to help burn victims of explosions at a water park on June 27 as living stipends for the families of some of the victims.
The move is being considered to compensate burn victim family members who have taken unpaid leave from work to look after their loved ones, a New Taipei spokesman said.
Civil servants have already been allowed to take 20 days of paid leave to care for family members injured in dust explosions at the Formosa Fun Coast water park in New Taipei on June 27.
The city government had previously provided living allowance for all burn victims regardless of their nationality. [FULL STORY]
