Taiwan Donates Musical Instruments to Pallotti

Sister Clara Teul

A ten-person delegation from a non-profit organization in Taiwan, “Chou Ta-Kuan Cultural and Educational Foundation,” is in Belize to spread its mission of love and care. Today they visited Pallotti High School to make a donation of one hundred soprano recorders.  Students and other school representatives gathered to receive the donation from the delegation.

“Well, we are grateful. Honestly, it is humbling. We didn’t know that we would be recipients of such great gifts and we understand that Palotti is well known for its music and so they decided to donate the instruments to the students. In reality, our enrollment is increasing and so these instruments comes in handy and we all know that not everyone can afford to have an instrument to play. It gives our students the opportunity to express not only in writing but also in music and as you all head about this foundation, the gentleman or the little boy wants to share the message about love and learn to love each other and be nice on the earth and to respect life on earth. We want to promote that through he musical instruments as the students use it and we hope that they continue to pass on that message to all.”

“I am very touched by this, our handing over ceremony. This is a private foundation in Taiwan in commemoration of a young kid in Taiwan who passed away at age ten from cancer and then the parents they transformed for their loved one to transform into spreading love and life to all the people over the world. They provide awards and books from the kids who passed away and for tens of millions of children across the world. He passed away and his message to us to try our best every day and because it is a gift from our heavenly father and to cherish life and help our community and friends and community and other human beings over the world.”

 

The foundation was started in the honor of Chou Ta-Kuan, who was a ten year old cancer warrior. He visited Belize at the age of nine before he was diagnosed with cancer.
