The “Search for Your Second Mother” project, headed by Radio Taiwan International and sponsored by some 30 civic groups, has taken on a new mission. It is helping a Taiwanese family track down an Indonesian caregiver whom they have lost touch with for 17 years. That’s after RTI successfully helped a Taiwanese woman find her long-lost Vietnamese nanny in July.
The Liao family in the central city of Taichung hired the Indonesian worker named Wati to care for their one-year-old boy in 2000. They spent nearly three years together before she left Taiwan in 2003. [FULL STORY]
