DBS Bank was the first to give back to society by donating NT$22.5 million to purchase 45,000 “DBS Heartwarming Food Bags,” each with a value of NT$500, and donated them to food banks in Nantou and other counties/cities through a video press conference on May 5. Magistrate Lin Ming-zhen along with Minister without Portfolio Audrey Tang, and Mayor Huang Wei-che of Tainan City had exchanges through this video press conference. On behalf of the citizens of Nantou County, Magistrate Lin expressed his utmost gratification to the heartwarming action of DBS Bank.

    Magistrate Lin pointed out that Nantou County is the county with the third highest proportion of aged population, second to Chiayi and Yunlin County. Nantou County has as many as 2,756 registered solitary elders that require care. The “DBS Heartwarming Food Bags” donated to Nantou County Food Bank will be prioritized for distribution to these solitary elders, enabling them to receive warm caring and actual supplements during the harsh days of the pandemic.

    Magistrate Lin also pointed out that DBS Bank, which has its headquarters based in Singapore, has donated a total of NT$238 million to Taiwan, Singapore, Indonesia, India, Hong Kong and China by founding the “Care More Pandemic Fighting Fund.” Besides providing 45,000 heartwarming food bags to Taiwan, it plans to donate a total of 5 million caring packs and food bags around the world. Elders in Nantou County are the first group of people to benefit from it, which really touches our heart.
