Bank of China donates .5M disposable masks to DOH

BANK of China Limited has donated 500,000 disposable medical masks to the Department of Health (DOH) to assist in the agency’s efforts to extend due assistance and protection to affected hospitals and communities in the Philippines.

The Bank urgently mobilized organizations to purchase a great number of medical protection resources from the mainland and made every effort to deliver this help overseas.

The Chinese Embassy in Manila said Bank of China, with the highest degree of globalization, once again took on the responsibility of corporate citizenship through the practice of China’s concept of community of human destiny and the international humanitarian spirit of “one family in the world”.

“In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s important to remember to be compassionate,” said Deng Jun, Country Head of Bank of China Manila.

Soon after receiving news from its Manila Branch about the situation of the pandemic in the Philippines, Bank of China Limited immediately processed the purchase and delivery of disposable medical masks that will be donated to DOH.

One week after the decision, donations swiftly arrived in the DOH headquarters on March 28, 2020.

Bank of China Limited also expressed its appreciation and applauded the continued professionalism and hardworking efforts of the Philippine Health Department to address the challenges brought about by COVID-19 by taking care of the Filipinos.
