When Taiwan was first attempting to make its mark on the Asian economy, there were many compromises made to the quality of life of those who labored in that economy: being competitive and efficient in the part of the world already known for its fierce competition and legendary efficiency meant that the national good trumped worker’s rights. In establishing theRerum Novarum Centre, Father Ellacuría, SJ and the Society of Jesus took to heart the exploitation of the rural population and the foreign factory workers, and created a ministry that would both alleviate their suffering AND fight for their rights. Sister Wei Wei, MMB (Mercedarian Missionaries of Berriz) succeeded Fr. Ellacuría and greatly expanded the scope of activity of theRerum Novarum Centre to meet the urgent needs of other voiceless groups in the Taiwanese society. Listen to the testimony of Sr. Wei Wei who directed the centre from 1990 to 2012.
