Taiwan can help. Taiwan is helping. During this pandemic, Taiwan is extending its help to the international community. Likewise, Taiwanese businesses in Thailand are also helping.

These supplies include masks, face shields, and several personal protection equipments. On April 10, 2020, President Pannee Yuvimonchai, accompanied by Maggie Lin (Honorary President), Siriporn Sae Chi (Vice President), and Fany Hou (Deputy Secretary General), led the Thai Taiwan Business Association Youth League (TTBAY) to the Police General Hospital in Bangkok, where they donated medical supplies. This charity event shows that Taiwan is taking real action to help.  Taiwanese business people in Thailand are doing what they can to help and give back to the Thai community. Their action and support are going to help Thailand fight the pandemic.  Not only is Taiwan helping, but Taiwanese people living in Thailand are also helping to get through this pandemic together.

Baltimore high school teachers and students in their first shadow puppetry course to explore Taiwanese culture
    25 teachers and students from the 10th and 11th grades of Roland Park Country School in Baltimore, Massachusetts, received a warm welcome as they visited the Culture Center of Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office in Washington DC.     First time participants in the Splendor of Taiwan activity organized by the Culture Center, the students attended a shadow puppetry production course where volunteer teachers briefly introduced the history and features of shadow puppetry and instructed students to pick their favorite characters in Journey to the West for puppet production. The students all had fun learning as the teachers used both Chinese and English to communicate with them in group discussions. At the end of the course, students took turns giving a one-minute shadow play on stage in groups. Before the students went home with their hands full of handmade shadow puppets and Taiwan national flag souvenirs, they all said their sad farewells to the staff of the Culture Center and the teachers.
