Foundations in Taiwan donate over US$ 200,000 worth of supplies to SVG

The Taiwan SimplyHelp Foundation in partnership with another non- profit charity organization in Taiwan has donated two containers (1-40 ft and 2-20 ft) to the Government of St Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG).

The containers include 1-thousand boxes of essentials; 482 rolls of fabric; tables and chairs; working uniforms; new clothes; as well as sporting equipment. The distribution of the supplies is being done through the Ministry of National Mobilisation.

Speaking at the handing over ceremony in Georgetown on Tuesday February 13, 2024, Ambassador of the Republic of China on Taiwan Fiona Fan, said the complete donation amounts to US$ 207,000 and she was grateful to be partnering with the Minister of National Mobilisation on the project.

“ …I will like to extend special thanks to the two foundations for their generosity; it is my great honour to be a part of their kind endeavour…Minister (Brewster), and I will continue our journey to share with those in need,” Ambassador Fan said.

The Ambassador also used the opportunity to encourage eligible students to take advantage of the undergraduate and post graduate scholarships provided by the government of Taiwan.

Ambassador Fan also stressed Taiwan’s commitment to strengthening the already close ties with the Government and people of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

“Our nations stand together stronger and united,” she affirmed (API).
