New Women and Family Service Center Opens in Wanhua

Taipei Mayor Hau Lung-bin attended the opening ceremony for the Taipei Wanhua Women and Family Service Center on August 15. Commissioned by the Department of Social Welfare (DSW), the center is operated by the local chapter of the Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA).

During his opening address, the mayor expressed his gratitude to the members of YWCA for establishing the center in Wanhua to help disadvantaged women and single mothers in the community.

Hau remarked that YWCA of Taiwan has devoted its efforts to helping the disadvantaged in strengthening international ties since its beginning over 60 years ago. It is one of the most well-organized and influential women’s association in the country.

He expressed confidence in the decision of having YWCA be in charge of the new center’s day-to-day operations.

Noting how Typhoon Morakot ravaged a number of municipalities in central and southern Taiwan, Hau hopes that the organization will collaborate with the city to help the victims of the flood, taking care of disadvantaged people in other parts of the island.

According to DSW, the center offers legal advice, referral/counseling, and other services. There is also a small library, a reading room, and an area for holding flea market for used kids clothes at the center.
