A woman may have to raise children, take care of elderly relatives, earn money to support the family, and do domestic chores. In case of misfortune, she may encounter violence, divorce, financial difficulties, family members’ illness, and so on. No one can imagine how much pressure she has to bear, how much suffering makes her heart and soul exhausted, how many difficulties make her struggle. When it comes to the Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA), our services can ease or solve the problems faced by countless women and families. The YWCA bandages their wounds, wipes their tears, provides nourishment, irrigates their heart, ignites the light of hope for their life and accompanies them forward.

This brochure records six moving stories of the YWCA family. For more details, please ask us for the handbook.

On November 2-4, National YWCA and the Branch jointly held an annual workshop on the theme of “To be a healthy, happy and environmentally friendly young woman.”

Volunteers and officers of the chapters successfully completed various activities through the courses and short-time practice, fully demonstrating the strong cohesion and enthusiasm of the YWCA. With a lecture given by President Shu-ti Chiu of the Yilan Branch, we got a better understanding of the current situation and international trends of aging, and let participants reflect on the direction of ministry services. After PresidentChun-Feng Lin gave a lesson, we knew more about the cohesion of the group. Following the three-day event, YWCA staff was energized to continue serving women and families across the nation.

Next year’s seminar will be co-organized with the Yilan Branch. We will reunite in Yilan next year.
