In Taiwan, an island of 23 million people, doctors tell us over one million babies are destroyed by abortion each year. A recent survey reveals that more than 53% of teens have experienced sex by the time they have finished high school, a figure which has increased four-fold in the past ten years. Premarital sex, teenage pregnancy, and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are increasing at an alarming rate. Today, Taiwan has the lowest birthrate in the entire world, which Ray of Hope believes is largely due to Taiwan’s Eugenic Protection Law.

Then, in September, 1999 the Ray of Hope Mercy Ministries was born, which today is the Ray of Hope Christian Charitable Organization.
