Im­mi­grant women group volunteering to con­nect with Tai­wan com­mu­nity

The China Post - - LOCAL -

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.
