Contributing to the fight against COVID-19, Taiwanese company Kuo Hua Trading Company has made donations to several organizations on the North Shore.
Kuo Hua Trading Company has so far donated 80,000 disposable masks to Metro Vancouver, including 20,000 to organizations on the North Shore.
This summer, Kuo Hua Trading Company was one of the first to import Made-in-Taiwan face masks, which are popular with customers. Amid the recent resurgence of COVID-19 cases in British Columbia, Kuo Hua Trading Company President Lisa Chung is giving back to communities and promoting Taiwan’s achievements in epidemic prevention with her generous donation of 80,000 masks to school organizations and social welfare groups in British Columbia.
Chung also offers scholarships and often sponsors charity activities.
Taipei Economic and Cultural Office (TECO) Vancouver Director General Andy Chen and MLA for North Vancouver-Lonsdale Bowinn Ma, along with Kuo Hua Trading Company Manager Angel Chung, delivered 20,000 masks to Hollyburn Family Services Society and eight other organizations and attended the donation ceremony on September 10.
“My office was honoured to be able to assist them in connecting with organizations for making donations,” said MLA Bowinn Ma.
“In a difficult time like this, it is important to work together to combat the pandemic. Taipei Economic and Cultural Office would like to help BC communities by donating high-quality Made-in-Taiwan masks,” TECO said in a press release.
Each of the following organisations received a case of 2,000 masks valued at $1200 before tax and distribution: Squamish Nation, Carson Graham Secondary, Sutherland Secondary, Hollyburn Family Services, Family Services of the North Shore, Lookout Shelter, CMHA North & West Vancouver, and North Shore Community Resources.
