Binance Charity Donations for Wuhan | Phase 1 Report
Following the outbreak of the coronavirus in Wuhan, China, Binance immediately decided to donate 10 million RMB worth of medical supplies to support the battle against the virus. Binance Charity Foundation leads this mission, searching for qualified medical supplies from all over the world and directly delivering them to as many hospitals in the infected area as possible.
As of February 23, 2020, Binance Charity has delivered 50,000 pairs of nitrile gloves, 100,000 pairs of latex gloves, 100,000 pairs of PVC gloves, 28,000 masks, 9 sterilizers, 173 barrels of disinfection liquid (around 5 tons), 20,000 testing kits, and 1,000 protective suits to 116 hospitals and medical teams in multiple provinces/cities including Hubei, Sichuan, Guangxi and Shanghai. We also bought 2,300 protective suits from Israel, and 388 oxygen machines are currently at the last step of distribution. In addition, 28,800 masks purchased from the U.S. are on their way.
Binance Charity not only covers major hospitals like Jinyintan Hospital and the Union Hospital, but also provides supplies to small hospitals in villages and towns like the Dawu People’s Hospital and Yunmeng Chengguanzhen Health Center. From purchase, shipping, customs clearance, to the collection and last-mile distribution, Binance Charity receives help from Binance Angels and volunteers from all over the world. Together we make sure that all funds are used to buy medical supplies, which are delivered directly to the hands of the doctors and nurses.
“We’re pleased to do everything we can to help Wuhan. And we believe China will eventually win the fight against the novel coronavirus” said Helen Hai, Head of Binance Charity.
Binance Charity clings onto the mandate of 100% transparency. For every step during the process, we keep records for public monitoring, in the form of contracts, receipts, signed letters, photos, and even videos.
We have one common goal, to defeat the virus, and Binance will stand with the people in China and around the world. We support you, and we will fight together! We believe the hard times will soon be over, and humanity shall prevail in the end.
