Taiwanese groups in PH donate 10,000 face masks in Cebu

The Taipei Economic and Cultural Office (TECO) said on Thursday (May 7), Taiwanese organizations in the Philippines have gave 10,000 medical-grade face masks to the Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center in Cebu City.

The donation was held last May 5 and headed by the Taiwanese Compatriot Association in the Philippines and the Taiwan Association to help the medical frontliners in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.

“On 5 May 2020, Secretary-General Yao-I WANG of Taiwan Association in Cebu, on behalf of his own Association and Taiwanese Compatriot Association in the Philippines, jointly donated 10,000 medical masks to Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center,” TECO said.

Earlier, other Taiwanese groups have also gave 1,500 personal protective equipment to the Philippine National Police (PNP) and other medical facilities like Chinese General Hospital and Medical Center (CGHMC), and National Kidney and Transplant Institute (NKTI). They also handed out 5,000 face masks to the Department of Health to help the country amid the health crisis.

In spite of the tension which emerged after Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said that Taiwan is part of China, the nation island remained determined in helping the Philippines cope up from the pandemic.
