USCBC member companies have already donated to a number of charitable organizations working in China, which will purchase needed medical equipment for use in hospitals in the Wuhan region. We urge companies to donate directly to charities they have experience with. A few suggestions:
- Wuhan Charity Federation
- China Red Cross Foundation
- China Youth Development Foundation
- One Foundation
- China Population Welfare Foundation
- Shanghai Soong Ching Ling Foundation
- China Development and Research Foundation(CDRF)
The embassy has also provided information about the specific medical supplies that are being requested by Wuhan. Needed are the following:
- Medical protective masks
- Medical surgical masks
- Medical isolation suits (disposable)
- Medical isolation masks
If you’d like to donate these items directly, please contact the embassy representative, Mr. Li Qing.
The embassy would like to know about your contributions in order to later recognize humanitarian assistance provided by American companies and citizens. Please let us know what you’ve done or are planning to do and we’ll provide this information to the embassy. American companies are often exemplary corporate citizens, especially in times of crisis, and we think there’s value in documenting the humanitarian work you do.
For more information, contact Senior Director of Communications Doug Barry.
