COVID-19-world-mapOn 24 Janunary 2020, the Association started a donation campaign to support China’s battle against the disease COVID-19 caused by the novel coronavirus 2019-nCov (as how it had been more commonly referred to before it was officially named SARS-CoV-2, “severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2”, by the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses). This led to a joint donation platform with eight other British Chinese organisations, which successfully donated a significant amount of medical material to frontline medical staff in China especially in the city of Wuhan.

On 21 March 2020, due to the rapid development of COVID-19 in the UK, the Association started a new donation campaign to support the NHS and frontline medical staff in the UK to fight against COVID-19.
