Taipei Economic and Cultural Office (TECO) in Brunei Darussalam in partnership with Taiwan Business Association and Taiwan Graduates Association of Brunei donated three wheelchairs to Lotus Light Charity Society (LLCS) recently.
TECO Representative to Brunei Darussalam Andrew HC Lee presented the contribution to LLCS Chairman Yeo Tiong Lok.
Lee said TECO and the associations are thrilled to be involved in charity works and facilitated activities to raise funds for the wheelchairs. They managed to amass 174 wheelchairs.
Previously, TECO and the associations donated 163 wheelchairs to Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Saleha (RIPAS) Hospital and other hospitals, Centre for Children with Special Needs (KACA) and Chinese schools in the past two years.
Lee said this charity programme demonstrated the goodwill of the people from Taiwan as well as corporate social responsibility (CSR) from businesses affiliated with the associations.
He said the island has a long history of humanitarianism and it is well positioned to contribute to the international community by sharing experiences and resources.
