Doo Prime’s Parent Company Doo Holding Group Limited Donates to Fight Outbreak of Coronavirus
Doo Holding is working closely with business network in Europe to obtain surgical masks and protective suits to be donated to hospitals in Hubei province
(HONG KONG, March 10) – Financial technology and services conglomerate Doo Holding Group Limited has pledged to donate medical supplies to help fight against the outbreak of novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) in Central China’s Hubei province.
In a bid to help Chinese hospitals to cope with coronavirus outbreak, Doo Holding CEO Windson Chan has allocated USD 20,000 to purchase 50,000 surgical masks and 500 pieces of personal protective equipment (PPE) to protect frontline medical personnel.
Chan said the company has been coordinating efforts with overseas business partners and friends from January 24 onward to purchase protective supplies and then to deliver directly to hospitals in Hubei province.
Shortly after the announcement of Wuhan lockdown, Doo Prime had reached out to producers of medical and protective supplies in China but it was to no avail due to the production of protective supplies across China was at about 40 per cent of overall capacity, and there was an acute shortage of surgical masks and protective suits.
“We are very concerned about the situation in China especially in hospitals in Wuhan, the epicenter of the outbreak, and other cities in Hubei province. Thus, we are coordinating with producers in Europe to purchase all available protective gears to be sent directly to hospitals in Hubei in no time.
Fortunately, actively liaising externally and fully coordinating with overseas departments and partners from all across the globe to allocate supplies, we are able to source surgical masks from South Africa. With that, Doo Prime and Doo Holding Group maximize our efforts in order to ensure a smooth and efficient delivery of the 3M masks from South Africa to Hubei province, China.
With cautious supervision and efficiency, the masks were delivered to Hubei province successfully with no issue. Once it has arrived, the surgical masks were then distributed equally to 3 hospitals in Hubei province.
“The consequences will be very grave if nothing is done. We can all play a part in providing humanitarian assistance for medical personnel to cope with the epidemic.
“The coronavirus outbreak has touched the hearts of billions of people in greater China. Doo group of companies will fulfill our corporate social responsibility (CSR) and will work with the Chinese people to overcome the difficulties,” said Chan.
