Volunteers of the Far Eastern Memorial Hospital in Taipei County yesterday taught foreign wives how to make zongzi (粽子) -- rice dumplings eaten during the Dragon Boat Festival -- ahead of the festival, which falls next Wednesday. The event was aimed at helping foreign spouses integrate themselves into Taiwanese society. It was jointly held by Far Eastern Memorial Hospital and the Banciao Farmers' Association. According to Ministry of Interior tallies, around 365,000 foreign wives -- including those from China -- married to Taiwanese men are living in Taiwan. Taipei County has the majority, with 54,056 foreign wives as of November last year. The tallies also show 13.25 percent of Taiwanese children are born to foreign mothers.
