Love in May, Taitung new immigrants receive recognitions

Taitung municipal government hosted the event “Love in May- International Family Day” on May 23 to encourage foreign spouses, new immigrants and their families to participate, learn and develop new immigrants’ culture and to honor the families who try to create a warm environment despite their hardships. Justin Huang, the incumbent magistrate of Taitung, presented awards to 42 role model families, 46 multicultural learning-orientated families and 90 winners of the writing and photo competition, “My precious family”.

Huang pointed out that Taitung is a multicultural place. At the moment, there are 3,900 new immigrant families, which take up 20% of the 80,000 families who reside in Taitung County. These foreign spouses are an important force in Taitung. “The foreign spouses work very hard despite the language barriers. Not only they have to play the role of wives, they take up the families’ financial responsibilities as well. They deserve to receive recognition and gratitude. Many of them have received certificates of various training courses,” said Huang.
During the event, there are volunteers from Xinshen Elementary School, performers from Taitung Foreign Spouse Association, and performances presented by Bao Sung Kindergarten.
