With the gradual intensification of the global epidemic, the disease situation is escalating. The current situation of overseas Chinese, especially overseas students, affects the hearts of everyone in the motherland!
On the 2nd, the World Health Organization held a press conference to introduce the latest situation of the global COVID-19. Who director general Tan Desai said that at present, the number of cases in China continues to decline, but the epidemic situation outside China is not optimistic. According to incomplete statistics of relevant departments, as of 12:00 on March 6 Beijing time, the cumulative number of confirmed cases in countries outside China has exceeded 31000. South Korea, Italy and Japan are still the countries with the largest number of confirmed cases outside China, and the number of deaths in Italy exceeded 300 for the first time. At the same time, the number of confirmed cases in many European countries is growing rapidly, and there are the first deaths in Britain and Switzerland. The United States has 28 deaths, the largest number of deaths outside China, South Korea, Italy and Japan.
At a time when the international epidemic situation is not optimistic, the large number of students studying abroad affect every one of us. According to the statistics on the number of students studying abroad released by the Ministry of education, in 2017 alone, 608400 people embarked on the journey of studying all over the world, which continued to rise in 2018. In 2019, the number of students studying abroad reached an all-time high! Children are the future and hope of the motherland. Recently, there has been a rush to buy all kinds of epidemic prevention materials abroad, and the news that Chinese have been discriminated against or even beaten and scolded abroad is heartbreaking.
As a well-known international transportation enterprise in China, YDH has recently received a large number of inquiries from students' parents and caring people from all walks of life. Can we send masks and protective materials to children far away from home!
At this time, the chairman and management of the company raised a question. Can we do something for the children? Yeah! These students are studying for the rise of China and are the cornerstone of all fields of the motherland in the future! Isn't there an old saying in China? No matter how hard it is, children can't be bitter! So we urgently held a meeting on how to ensure that the materials reach each child, how to solve the problems in customs clearance, and how to collect the addresses of children in need.
Fortunately, we are a nation that has always been united in the face of disaster. Soon after, we received close contact from the Pudong International Student Federation and social caring people. Open up channels for us to contact overseas students who need donations abroad. This gave us a shot in the arm. The board of directors immediately decided to set up a special project team with an initial fund of 3 million yuan. Combined with our current transportation capacity, it is expected to provide 20 masks for at least 30000 children studying abroad free of charge. At the same time, a special customer service team for private donations to send masks was opened. We hope that students studying abroad will not worry and fear, because behind you is a country that has stood in the forest of nations in the world for 5000 years. Although we have not done enough compared with the needs of foreign countries, we firmly believe that someone will continue to join us. In the face of great disasters, there must be great love. It is our duty to fight the global epidemic!
At present, the countries we can cover are:
Japan, USA, Canada, UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Netherlands, Sweden, Belgium, Denmark, Austria, Luxembourg, Slovenia, Poland, Czech Republic, Ireland, Finland, Hungary, Lithuania, Latvia, Slovakia, Portugal.
China has a large number of migrant workers studying abroad. We may still be a drop in the bucket just by ourselves. But we believe that there will be people who will continue to join us and contribute together. This is only the beginning!
The following is the contact information of domestic family or friends who sign up for donations or need to send materials abroad:
