Hosting Cathwel Service (Taiwan)
It’s with great pleasure that we hosted a team from 天主教福利會Cathwel Service, a Taiwanese non-profit providing residential care, adoption, and placement services for children, youth, and unwed mothers in Taipei.
The visiting team comprised of management, care associates, and social workers from Cathwel’s various services. Through the presentations, tour of Melrose Home’s facilities, and discussions over tea break, we were able to better understand how Cathwel evolved their services to meet the changing needs of their community, challenges faced along the way, and what motivates them to continue the good work.
We are very heartened to know that though we live in different countries, our passion to care for the young in need has brought us closer. The organisational and cultural learnings through this visit will be treasured by all of us.
This marked the first international learning exchange of 2018 and we look forward to future opportunities for us to connect, learn, and build friendships with other charities around the world!
