Universiade but it has certainly won plenty of hearts. After the preliminary round ended Friday, team members pooled their own funds and donated NT$3,727 to the local Chensenmei Social Welfare Foundation.

The UAE has a tradition in which people assist charity organizations either through donations or volunteering, and the players wanted to bring the custom to Taiwan, they said. The team didn’t manage to win any of its five preliminary matches, coming in sixth in Group D. It will play for a spot between 17th and 22nd.    [SOURCE]
