Chinese students contribute to University COVID-19 campaign

LCCSA members deliver masks to Dave Hobson, University of Liverpool Mailroom

Liverpool Chinese Students and Scholars Association (LCSSA) and the Belt and Road Association UK have donated 6,000 pieces of personal protective equipment (PPE) to the University’s COVID-19 Emergency Response Campaign.

The Emergency Response Campaign is raising funds to support the University’s world-leading and transformational COVID-19 research, as well as assisting the NHS through equipment donations.

The University will distribute the donation of 6,000 protective masks to NHS trusts through Liverpool’s donation hub.

A representative from the LCSSA said: “Chinese students have always been an important part of the Chinese community in Liverpool. We feel more united with citizens across Liverpool in this difficult time. We believe this meaningful donation is a reflection of deep and profound China-UK relationship. We hope these PPE can help frontline medical and care workers fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. Together we will get through this.”

Professor Gavin Brown, Pro Vice-Chancellor for Education said: “We are very thankful to the LCSSA and the Belt and Road Association for this generous donation to our campaign, which will help us to support the NHS during these challenging times. It is a great example of our University community coming together to benefit our society.”
