Pinoy Love in Taipei

Gen Huang

Alone and far away from home, migrant Philippine brethren and sistren in Taiwan are always lonely and homesick. Gen Huang, who married into a Taiwanese family, founded the PhilTai platform online, developing a platform for compatriots in different countries around the world to provide support for their Philippine sistren in Taiwan.

Brought up in an academic family, Gen continues to worry about educational opportunities for children in the Philippines. Taking the initiative and connecting sistren in Fujian and Taiwan, Gen leads the collection of donated stationery, school supplies, and toys, sending them to elementary and middle schools in the Philippines with the support of local volunteers. In 2013, Gen’s Taiwan-based charity was awarded a NT$200,000 grant from a Taiwanese charitable foundation, inviting Taiwanese journalists to travel back and forth in the remote mountains of the Philippines for four hour treks. Articles and reports were published in the Filipino version of the 4-Way News, and received warmly by the community.

Electricity and clean water are extremely scarce resources in poor and rural areas in the Philippines. In addition to schoolchildren’s educations, Gen is also working hard to find grants, subsidies, and other support in Taiwan to supply water and electricity for the poor. The pinoy love in Taipei is a bridge across the ocean, connecting the Philippine home country with their second home in Taiwan.
