Stand with the healthcare workers with the medical equipment they need to fight against COVID-19!
According to CDC, there are already more than 200,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus (updated April 2, 2020) in the U.S. and this trend does not seem to be going down immediately. U.S. hospitals are in urgent need of medical supplies such as surgical or N95 masks, surgical and isolation gowns, goggles, etc.
Chinese Union, a non-profit student-run organization based at UC San Diego, is, therefore, hosting this fundraising for donations towards the medical equipment to UCSD Health, UCI Medical Center, and Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital.
Knowing that it is extremely difficult to get any medical supplies from U.S. companies, we will be buying medical supplies from Chinese companies with our connections and deliver the supplies to U.S. hospitals as soon as possible.
During this process, as a certified non-profit organization, Chinese Union will not be benefiting financially from this event. We are simply here to help.
Here is a little bit more info about what Chinese Union has done in the past:
Chinese Union had helped raise funds for Chinese (Wuhan and Hebei Province) hospitals during the start of the coronavirus pandemic in China. Ever since our founding fathers created Chinese Union at UC San Diego, we have been committed to contributing to the community with our specific perceptions of Chinese culture. Learn more about us at:
