Taipei, Dec. 19 (CNA) Around 850 residents in Taichung served as “meal
delivery angels for a day” to send out hot meals and daily necessities as Christmas gifts to disadvantaged elderly and disabled individuals in the central city Saturday.
Riding their bicycles, the “meal delivery angels” set off from Taichung Municipal Guang Fu Elementary School carrying meals and goods such as oatmeal, grain powder, towels and lotion to their destinations.
The activity was held by the Ganlin Foundation (甘霖基金會) charity, which delivers meals to more than 730 disadvantaged elderly and disabled individuals in Taichung on a daily basis.
Every year ahead of Christmas, the foundation rallies the public to engage in the event to show their care for disadvantaged groups. [FULL STORY]
