TAIPEI -- Taiwanese charity groups traveled to remote areas of Sri Lanka and Mongolia earlier this month to provide medical services to people there, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which covered part of the costs of the missions.
The Taiwan Root Medical Peace Corps provided free treatment for people in the towns of Balangoda and Deniyaya in southern Sri Lanka, on a July 5-13 medical mission, said Ray Mou, director general of the ministry's Department of NGO International Affairs, at a news briefing Tuesday.
Based in New Taipei, the charity group is known for its visits to remote areas around Taiwan and in other countries to provide medical services.
