Bento Boxes for the Homeless
公益活動Charity > 街友關懷 Bento Boxes for the Homeless
Yuanmen’s Bento Boxes for the Homeless program began on January 11, 2017. Every Friday at noon, we work with the Wanhua District Department of Social Affairs (on Wuzhou Street in Taipei City) in providing vegetarian bento boxes for the poor and homeless.
Reason for Event:
It has been reported that people become homeless for many different reasons, and the fault does not usually lie with just the individual alone; it is often a result of interaction between the individual and the social structure. However, Taiwan’s social welfare system is improving, and tolerance is increasing, which means people are becoming less apt to end up on the streets.
但在他們人生的 “坎” 中，
Yuanmen looks to extend helping, accepting hands of action toward disadvantaged people of all types in Taiwan. No one is safe from the pitfalls of life, and when people stumble into pits that are too deep and can’t find a way out, they become homeless. One way they survive is by being registered as homeless and then receiving our bento boxes the next day at designated distribution centers. We may not know these people, but while they are struggling, we are giving them energy to move forward by providing them with our vegetarian bento boxes.
