Fundraiser for the Battle with Coronavirus

Coronavirus outbreak lately made the news and is impacting many people’s lives worldwide. Here in Fargo-Moorhead, even though we don’t currently have a single case of infection, we are quite concerned as a community. We need to acknowledge that it is a rapidly spreading disease and just happened to be first detected in China, like any prior diseases we have heard such as ebola, swine flu. However, we want to focus on fact instead of fear, focusing on what we can do as a community. United Chinese American Fargo Moorhead (UCAFM) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization formed to help support FM residents who came from China originally. At this critical moment, UCAFM feels obligated to provide a channel of help. In China, many hospitals are in shortage of medical supplies such as surgical masks, medical googles, exam gloves, surgical gown, etc. That causes many patients not getting the diagnostics or proper treatment. Doctors and health professionals have been put in overtime daily but don’t have adequate tools. We are currently raising funds to send donations to designated hospitals in China. We are also looking into options to directly purchase and ship medical supplies to the health professionals what they need during this critical time.

中国加油 – 情系中国抗疫募捐活动

春节本是万家团圆的喜庆节日,然而在国内,今年却被新型冠状病毒破坏了原有的节日气氛,取而代之的是:武汉等多个城市封锁交通,31个省市自治区全部公共卫生事件一级响应,整个国家处于巨大的疫情阴霾之下。而现在,坚守在各地一线的医务工作者发出防护物资短缺的呼求,更让海内外同胞焦急不已。1月26日,工信部副部长表示口罩和防护服紧缺。

一方有难,八方支援!我们呼吁华人社区广大同胞和留学生们伸出援手,帮助国内的同胞们尽快战胜病毒,让所有人能够正常生活。

Fargo-Moorhead华人联合会决定联手NDSU CSSA一起开通*情系中国抗疫募捐*专用PayPal捐赠通道,捐款截止日期为2月5日。另外,UCAFM将从有限的爱心基金里捐出$500。同时,我们也在积极寻找医用防护服和口罩的货源支持国内。如果未能找到货源,所捐款项将全部捐给*中国华侨公益基金会* 的*抗击疫情*专项基金, 由其统一在全球寻找物资渠道,并购买需要的医疗用品帮助中国。我们将定期公布捐款名单,请不愿公开个人信息的同胞在捐款时注明。
