Sharing love

Taiwan delegation crosses seas and mountains to assist children of Nepal.

There are 3,700 kilometers between Taipei and Kathmandu, but the two communities are much closer now, due to a visit by Lan Xing, Taiwan, Kiwanis Club members to Nepal’s Disabled Rehabilitation Center this past January.

Under the theme “Love Around the World,” Lan Xing members traveled to Nepal, carrying paper, pencils and other educational supplies for the center with a long-time goal of providing financial support, teaching students self-sufficiency skills and encouraging foreign language learning.

“We hope that poor children can get rid of poverty and continue to complete their studies,” says Mei Mei Lou, Lan Xing club president. “At the same time, we hope to arouse the attention of all local communities and influence participation among more caring people … to help orphans who are physically disabled or helpless to improve their lives and change their destiny.”

While visiting the center, Kiwanians shared their Chinese culture by teaching the children how to make paper lanterns. And the children welcomed their guests with a performance of Nepali traditional dance.
