Buying Taiwan Lottery tickets really helps public welfare of the country: President Tsai

Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen said 50 percent of the earning from sales of the scratch card lottery goes toward social welfare, 45 percent toward the country's National Pension scheme and 5 percent to the National Health Insurance.


"I want to tell everyone that buying Taiwan Lottery tickets really helps public welfare," Tsai said.


The lottery also helps provide employment for the disadvantaged according to Tsai as the operation of lottery stores is limited to certain groups of people.


"We must work hard to take care of the disadvantaged so that everyone can have a better new year," Tsai said, noting that the sale of lottery tickets usually spikes during the Lunar New Year in Taiwan.


The money collected from the lottery had helped more than 5.5 million underprivileged people through public welfare and charity projects run by social welfare and charity groups in Taiwan.
