Recently due to surplus harvests of national agricultural produce like onions, garlics and bananas, their prices have not been as favorable as expected. To be empathetic to farmers’ hard work and to take care of farmers’ livelihood, the government has been advocating and encouraging produce purchases. To echo the government policy and to support farmers, Land Bank of Taiwan organized the charity event of “Buying Agricultural Produce off Farmers for Charitable Causes” and purchased 36.45 tons of produce from the Fruits & Vegetables Cooperative Association ROC, i.e., 2,250 bags of onions, 150 bags of garlics and 300 crates of bananas, which were distributed to various welfare organizations and charities via the Bank’s headquarters and 148 branches across the island in early May. Today (May 3rd), the Bank’s chairperson, Joanne Ling, along with her colleagues, visited the Genesis Social Welfare Foundation (GSWF) to donate the produce, rendering a heart-warming sight. In her speech, Chairperson Ling pointed out that the GSWF is Taiwan’s only social welfare agency specializing in taking care of people in deep coma. The GSWF went through a demanding period in its early inception. But given efforts and persistent on the part of its founder, Mr. Cao Qing, the GSWF was able to start serving those in a vegetative state in 1986 under the name of “Genesis Care Center for Those in Coma”. In the following year (1987), the GSWF’s application to register its name was granted and had since teamed up with its sister organizations, the Huashan Social Welfare Foundation (HSWF) and the Zenan Homeless Social Welfare Foundation (ZHSWF), to set up many bases throughout Taiwan and take care of the disadvantaged, such as those in coma, elderlies living alone, and the homeless, while lessening the burden of many families and soothing their psychological pain. In recent years, the Bank has been consistently working with the GSWF, the HSWF and the ZHSWF by organizing charity events of buying and donating agricultural produce. It is with the GSWF’s complete support network that the Bank can spread the love to those in need. We hope the general public will join in the act of kindness and purchase more of the country’s agricultural produce, not only for one’s good health but also to help with the farmers’ livelihood. A 100% state-run bank under the Ministry of Finance, the Bank focuses on its finance expertise to generate income for the national treasury, as well as keeping the society’s disadvantaged groups in mind and inviting social welfare agencies to take part in the Bank’s annual charity events, so that the disadvantaged will receive love and care from the society. Further, we hope our action will set off ripple effects and draw more people from the general public to follow suit.
