Taipei, Feb. 25 (CNA) Australia and New Zealand’s top envoys to Taiwan participated in a special fundraising event Thursday in Taipei, which involved sleeping on the floor in a cold room and having their electronic devices taken away to simulate homelessness.
The event, called “CEO Sleepout,” was joined by several members of the Taiwanese business community and representatives from foreign countries, who were willing to be “homeless” for one night, in an effort to help raise awareness of the issue in Taiwan.
The event is taking place at a meeting room in the Holiday Inn East Taipei, where participants had the same meals served to the homeless people by the Salvation Army’s care center. [FULL STORY]
