【July 2018】1- Building a Compassionate City

In early April of 2018, Taiwan’s Ministry of the Interior announced that the nation has officially become an aged society. It is estimated that in 2061, 41% of the population will be above 65 years of age, meaning that every 1.3 young adult must support an elderly.

This would be one of the toughest challenges we face in Taiwan in the near future.
