Foreign-born Taiwanese students held charity sale

Four foreign-born Taiwanese students from Beiyuan Elementary School in Chiayi are running a cooking charity business together, hoping to help other kids in their mothers' homeland of Cambodia to go to school as happily as they do.

Class teacher Lin Ya-fen said the four students took the cooking class in school and were wondering what they could do with their skills. Some teachers suggested they make some snacks for a charity sale and use the money to help more kids in their mothers' native countries. They started the business right away and raised NT$16,800 in four months, winning an international charity project.

“We hope the children in Cambodia can go to school happily like us, and do not have to worry about their next meal and to suffer from bad things anymore,” the four foreign-born children said.
