China Rushes Aid to Nepal After Deadly Earthquake; Taiwan Is Turned Away | TIME

Read this article from Time Magazine:

China Rushes Aid to Nepal After Deadly Earthquake; Taiwan Is Turned Away | TIME.

And in the Taipei Times:

PS. Update on Wednesday morning, a team from Taiwan has left for Nepal….

Taiwanese aid teams leave for Nepal – Taipei Times.
