Buck Foundation to provide aid to children in other countries with health, education, and job training. The foundation is one of the first to serve new immigrants and their children in Taiwan.
The first Taiwan office of the Pearl S. Buck Foundation was established in 1968. The foundation has been serving in Taiwan for over 50 years. Following the localization trend that is happening around the world, the foundation has been dealing with cross-marriage issues and serving new immigrant families in Taiwan. The foundation is a pioneer in social welfare to serve new immigrant families and children of new immigrants.
