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.
