Taiwan-Funded Community Library in Panama Inaugurated

Books & ReadingBy Ramon Huang and Luis Huang - Panama City, May 6 (CNA) A community library in the Panamanian township of La Conga, constructed using donations from the Republic of China (ROC) government, was formally inaugurated Saturday to upgrade Panamanian school children's educational quality. Speaking at the inauguration ceremony, Taiwanese Ambassador to Panama Hou Ping-fu said that as there are no libraries at Panama's remote schools, the Taiwan government decided to make donations to help build the library at the request of FUNDACUNA, a local non-profit organization. Taiwan is also planning, in the near future, to donate computers to Panama's elementary schools in remote areas as part of its efforts to help improve the quality of education in the Central American country, Hou said. Coinciding with the inauguration of the library, FUNDACUNA also distributed a shipment of clothing and footwear donated by Taiwan to the disadvantaged in La Conga. Taiwan donated a total of 76 containers of clothing and footwear to Panama last year. FUNDACUNA Chairman Edith Roqueber told CNA that the organization has received funds from the ROC government to help build six community libraries, and that so far three libraries have been inaugurated.
