Donation of Medical Equipment to Hubei Province
Australia Oriental Media Buddhist Charity Association and its audience members donated the second batch of medical equipment to the epidemic area of Hubei province.
On March 2, the second batch of professional medical equipment, including medical goggles and surgical masks, values at AU$20,000, will be sent to China to support its local hospitals and medical effort. The supplies have been donated by the Australia Oriental Media Buddhist Charity Association (AOMBCA) and some 150 of its audience members.
When disaster struck, support came from all sides. The coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan and other places touched the hearts of the majority of overseas Chinese. The audience of Australia Oriental Media Group in Australia is always concerned about the motherland, and actively responds to and participates in the charitable donation activities organised by the AOMBCA.
To alleviate the shortage of local medical supplies in Hubei, the AOMBCA Executive Board had specially arranged and purchased professional medical equipment from all over Australia. The first and second batch of medical supplies values at AU$20,000 and having been donated by the AOMBCA and its 150 audience members have been sent to China, in order to ease the urgent need of the local medical supplies and to support the local rescue efforts.
Mr Lu Jun-Hong, JP, Chairman of AOMBCA and the board of directors of AOMBCA expressed their gratitude to the audience representatives who participated in the donation. Audience members of Australia’s Oriental Media Group said that although they are overseas, they miss their compatriots dearly when their home country is in need of help. They hope they can help their native country to tide over the difficulties in a modest effort and to express their patriotism. Go Wuhan!
