SINGAPORE - The Singapore government has contributed to Taiwan three pallets of medical supplies, including artificial skin and other materials required for the treatment of burn victims of a water park blast.

Singapore also expressed its heartfelt condolences to the victims and families affected by the fire at the Formosa Fun Coast Water Park on June 27 in New Taipei City, the Singapore Trade Office in Taipei said in a statement on Saturday.

Nearly 500 people, including a Singaporean, were injured after coloured powder sprayed on partygoers during the annual Colour Play Asia festival ignited into a ball of fire, ripping through the crowd.

Four people were killed, while more than 200 sustained severe injuries.
