Taipei, July 10 (CNA) A program launched by Chinese Christian Relief Association
(CCRA) to tutor underprivileged children has helped many students advance their education, including helping an Indonesian immigrant’s child get into college, the CCRA said Monday.
Since the program was launched in 2004, it has provided assistance to more than 30,000 children, including Hsiao-yu, a girl living in Chiayi County who was born to an Indonesian mother and was recently admitted to National Tsing Hua University’s Department of Music, the organization said.
Hsiao-yu and her brother and sister have been raised by their mother single-handedly because her father has been sick in the hospital for a long time, leaving the family financially strapped. [FULL STORY]
