Where are we helping?

Mongolia is the second-largest landlocked country in the world. A sparse population over the vast land with more than 3 million inhabitants and livestock of 24 folds more living on the territory of 1.5 million km. It is a realm where animals are more than people. However, in this country, 28% of the population lives below the poverty line, and nearly half of Mongolians live in the capital, Ulaanbaatar. With urbanization and economic development, resources in remote areas and the poor could be said to be quite scarce.

 

The Mongolia Branch Office of Taiwan Fund for Children and Families (TFCF Mongolia) was established in 2004 which was also our very first overseas branch office. The service scope includes 9 districts, 6 towns, and 2 orphanages in Ulaanbaatar. Over the years, we have been committed to different and multiple dimensions to help disadvantaged families, such as financial support, medical service, education, housing, vocational skills training, etc. There are 11,000 children in approximately 3,380 families who accept our services now.

 

How do we help?

Among our work in various aspects, medical service is one of our main programs in Mongolia. According to statistics from the National Center for Maternal and Child Health, about 4,000 to 4,500 patients receive medical assistance each year, of which 25% suffer from cleft lip and palate diseases. Others include otolaryngology, urology, and ophthalmology. However, lacking medical resources in remote areas and undersupply in big cities resulting in many children are not lucky enough to have the opportunity to be treated, which affects their subsequent life and study. 

Therefore, we support the training program for medical personnel and assist in upgrading medical facilities and equipment in remote areas. We also provide medical transportation subsidies for rural children and their families. To guard the right of the health and well-being of every child is our very first mission. In addition, besides medical services, TFCF Mongolia has tried to improve children's living in many ways and aspects. We believe that every child deserves to grow up safely and happily, and we will leave no stone unturned to achieve this vision.
