|Christian Salvation Service is a registered non profit social service organization in Taiwan and a registered not-for-profit 501 c3 organization in the United States. CSS was established in 1983 and our goal is to continue to save and enrich lives. In so doing we strive to show the love of God to all we meet by both our work quality and our personal faith.
We have developed an active child rescue program and children’s shelter to assure the safety and proper care for children who for whatever reason are relinquished for adoption by their parent or who are wards of the government. CSS also provides respite care for infants in high risk family situations.
Some infants we care for are born with congenital birth defects, or other special needs, including some children suffering the effects of maternal drug abuse. We are working with infants and young children who are in crisis situations. CSS also offers counseling to birth families and individuals as they endeavor to adjust to the birth of a handicapped, critically ill, or unwanted infant.
Our social workers provide counseling free of charge to birth parents or individuals who have suffered abuse or are addicted to drugs. Our workers also visit clients who for some offense are serving time in rehab centers or prison.
Christian Salvation Service maintains a children’s care facility named MU-En in a suburb of Taipei. This facility cares for approximately twenty eight children in a loving home like environment. It is fully staffed by registered nurses and additional licensed child care providers. Mu-En is able to give a level of care not available in the individual home situation.
Mu-En Care FacilityOur goal and purpose is to give assistance to the little ones when they need a place to find care. They may be born with defects such as missing limbs, gastrointestinal problems, chromosome anomalies, imperferated anus, vision impairment or even blindness. With proper medical care and early intervention of physical therapy, stimulating surroundings, and lots of loving care, they can reach their full potential.
Thankfully, with the health insurance now available in Taiwan basic medical treatment is widely available. However, with many more children now being saved by early treatment there are large numbers of infants who are not wanted by their families when disabilities or long term treatments are required. Many families or single mothers simply can not provide the special care these babies need to continue to live and develop. These babies are unable to be kept long term in hospitals. However, they still need special care due to their inability to get by without such extra measures as tube feeding, oxygen treatments, colostomy care, medication, physical therapy and an increased level of physical and mental stimulus geared to their particular special need.
Mu-En NeedsWe have many needs, the expense of maintaining a professional nursing staff and support workers for the baby house, food and diapers, equipment such as oxygen machines, monitors, suction machines, beds, swings, high chairs, etc, transportation costs to and from therapy or hospital visits. There are so many costs related to caring for high risk or special needs infants, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. When possible after the crisis period and counseling some children will be able to go home to their parents or guardian, others may be placed with adoptive parents. Our goal is to help all babies reach their full potential with love and joy and to be in a forever family.
