Taiwan has officially entered the aging society. In collaboration with the government's policy to promote local healthy aging, the Ministry of the Interior has endeavored to diversify the dimension of military alternative social services by actively guiding the servicemen to participate in public welfare projects and care for the elders. The goals are to observe the culture and nature around us, transform military service obligations into social welfare, closely observe the pulse of the society, and fulfill the "community care and social services" spirit of alternative military servicemen.

Deputy Minister Chen indicated that Tainan's alternative service social building project is the first in the nation. By utilizing the alternative servicemen's skills we are able to revitalize the idle spaces of the society, the program has made many achievements. I am very happy for the opportunity to return to the beautiful Lianxiang Baihe to participate in the Baihe District Alternative Service Building Project results presentation. Not only is Baihe District the hometown of lotuses, the flowers blooming in the park also represent the rich vitality and energy of Baihe. The officers of the Baihe District Office and the servicemen have worked hard for community building and long-term care services, and spare no effort to care for the elders in the community. The " Eating is the priority "event has been well received by the elders, inspired a sense of recognition by the residents of the local community, and attracted foreign counties and cities to visit and observe the event. I believe that the elders living here must be very happy.
