The South China Morning Post (SCMP) on Monday reported on some Taiwanese organizations and businesses that are very active in supporting the Hong Kong protests, to the point of sending them hundreds of thousands of dollars in supplies.
One major Taiwanese backer of the Hong Kong protests is the Chi-Nan Presbyterian Church, which has offered assistance to Hong Kongers fleeing the city as well as supporting those who remain to demonstrate against the government. The church knows exactly what the demonstrators need – its aid shipments to Hong Kong have included gas masks, helmets, and supplies to help recover from exposure to tear gas and pepper spray.
