On March 20, a creative workshop on Taiwan traditional arts was held in the Library, attended by dozens of out-patient clinic and hospitalized children.  Staff of the Taipei Mission demonstrated paper-cutting and calligraphy practicing for children and parents.  And by engaging children in the fascinating traditional arts, the workshop had helped soothe and distract children from pains and stressfulness.  Ms. Indra Veismane, Director of Education Department of the Riga Children’s Hospital and parents expressed appreciation to the Taipei Mission.
