Department of Social Welfare, New Taipei City Government held the “2022 Role Model Commendation Conference for Mothers” and a total of 61 parents were recognized. One of them is Ms. Wu Shi Fang Heng from Vietnam who got married in Taiwan.
To lessen the financial burden of the family, she had a job in a factory when she first arrived in Taiwan. Unfortunately, she accidentally lost three fingers while working. However, she did not give up and tried her best to take good care of her children instead. Besides, she even set up an Immigrant Care Association to help other immigrants residing in Taiwan.
After overcoming all difficulties and setbacks such as language barriers and cultural differences, Wu Shi Fang Heng learned how to be a good parent. She even studied the Chinese language in the night school. Her parenting enabled her son to be a kind-hearted person who assisted a classmate with physical disabilities for three years.
In addition, Wu Shi Fang Heng established Bali District Immigrant Care Association to provide courses, welfare & legal consulting services for immigrants in Taiwan.
The Commendation Conference has a theme of “Read your wonderful journey” and a retro photoshoot booth that brings back their memories of young age. Besides, there were also a series of performances that spiced up the atmosphere.
