In December 7th, 2003, the first nationwide organization of “foreign brides,” the Taiwan Southern Asia-Pacific Sisterhood, was established. The association calls for foreign sisters to actively interact with their local communities throughout the island.
Despite diverse nationalities, cultural backgrounds and languages, these sisters are inseparably bound by the fate they share. Languages in Taiwan—Mandarin, Hakka, Minnan—become their common tongue in daily communication. Now, after joining the association, the sisters will give a new meaning to their home.
