A huge thank you to Chinese benefactors for sending masks to fellow Societies



When coronavirus first appeared, the IFSCC was immediately concerned for the health and well-being of friends and colleagues in China and offered to send surgical masks to our Benefactors there. At that point we had no idea how quickly and viciously the novel coronavirus would impact countries around the world. Within weeks Italy, then Spain and France, were hit hard and all other countries quickly followed.

Our PR Committee Chair, Simon Chan reached out to a few Benefactors in China, asking if they wanted to offer any masks and surgical gowns to IFSCC Societies in hard-hit countries. We were stunned by the overwhelming response. Soon Simon and his team were arranging for shipments of masks and gowns around the world.

In many countries it was impossible to find personal protective equipment such as masks and surgical gowns and in many cases these generous donations literally meant the difference between life and death. So far there have been 40 shipments of 57,000 masks and 100 surgical gowns to 28 organizations in 19 countries.

We send our sincere thanks for this caring, generous and rapid response.
