Los Angeles, California, USA. 27th March, 2020. The coronavirus outbreak in the United States has created a state of emergency for the country, with hospitals in major cities such as Los Angeles facing a shortage of medical supplies and protective equipment for healthcare workers. In response to the emergency, the Chinese Consulate General in Los Angeles called on the Chinese communities and organizations in Los Angeles to urgently work together and initiate donations to the local hospitals and communities.
The president of the Chinese American Cultural Exchange Association, Susan Shu Wang, immediately worked with her organization to donate 1,325 units of hospital protective suits, the hospital-specific Ansell Alphatec Microchem coveralls that are hooded and booted, to provide the needed protection for medical staff who are treating patients infected with the coronavirus. Wang Shu stated, “The epidemic has no borders. The Chinese American Cultural Exchange Association should build a bridge of love between the motherland and the United States to make due contributions to the fight against the epidemic.” Dai Shuangming, the Deputy Consul General of the Chinese Consultate General in Los Angeles and Tang Changan, Director of the Overseas Chinese, both provided their support and assistance with the donation to the City of Los Angeles that was delivered on March 27th, 2020.
During this period, Susan Shu Wang stated, “The Secretary General of our association, Lorrie Zhu, devoted a lot of effort and coordination to the collection and distribution of donated materials, and has always quietly dedicated her love. During this epidemic, many beautiful Chinese and overseas Chinese, like her, have played an important role in fighting the epidemic of the motherland and the United States with practical actions.”
