Immigrant women group volunteering to connect with Taiwan community
A group of immigrant women have shared cultural riches of their native lands with their new community in Taiwan with the help of the National Immigration Agency (NIA).
The NIA’s Taipei City branch organized the event in which immigrants from Indonesia and China partook in community volunteering, while also showing off their traditional dance skills and musical talents.
Elderly residents of Wenshan District’s Shunxing Borough gave their performances a big “thumbs-up.” Many of the volunteers have resided in Taiwan for many years, but it was their first opportunity to share a meal with local residents.
The NIA hopes events like this will help immigrants and local residents to understand each other and give newer residents an opportunity to learn and contribute to their communities.
