Challenge

In Taiwan, challenges of hunger, poverty, and health are deeply interlinked, affecting over 250 thousands households and leading to poor nutritional health and social isolation among children. In 2023, about 470 thousands metric tons of food are wasted, underscoring the critical need for efficient and sustainable food systems. MSM acknowledges the importance of a comprehensive approach to address these challenges, aiming beyond simple food provision.

Solution

LoveLife Centre by MSM innovates community support, combining an efficient online platform for goods distribution and emergency relief fund, providing not only essential items but also financial aid for crisis-hit families. This multifaceted approach of utilizing technology for resource management and offering financial support, is directly addressing the Sustainable Development Goals (1-No Poverty, 2-Zero Hunger, 3-Good Health and Well-being), and fosters long-term community resilience.

Long-Term Impact

MSM's LoveLife Centre aims to establish a self-sustaining, well-being oriented network in Taiwan, empowering communities and upholding dignity in support. Integrating emergency aid with technology for smart resource distribution, LoveLife Centre significantly lower food waste and enhance the living standards of the vulnerable. This holistic strategy anticipates improving the well-being of thousands annually, contributing crucially towards No Poverty, Zero Hunger, Good Health and Well-being.
