The Bjorgaas Foundation and the FamilyMart convenience store chain have worked together over the past four years to lend support to Malawi through donations, as well as selling coffee.
Three widows from Malawi that have received support sang Malawian songs to express appreciation to the foundation at the Victory Home, a facility that accommodates physically and mentally challenged people.
Serrah, one of the widows, expressed thanks to the foundation and the Taiwan people for giving her the means to raise chickens and hogs and later build her own house.
Liu Kan (劉侃), chairman of Victory Home, noted that the home was established by Norwegian doctor Olav Bjorgaas, who came to Taiwan decades years ago to work at the Pingtung Christian Hospital. [FULL STORY]
