Xiaomi announced the first batch of donations to Singapore, including 100,000 masks, has been delivered to the National Council of Social Service (NCSS), in an effort to help counter the Covid-19 pandemic.
The supplies, jointly donated by Xiaomi Foundation and Singapore-based distributor partner, Raduga Pte Ltd, have been received by the National Council of Social Service (NCSS), a government body that serves as a coordinator in supporting and providing relief supplies to citizens and families, including healthcare workers, frontline workers and volunteers during the pandemic.
This follows Xiaomi’s pledge to distribute 1 million face masks across Europe announced by Shou Zi Chew. To date, Xiaomi has and is donating supplies including masks, thermometers, protective gowns, among others, to various markets including Italy, Spain, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Poland, Romania, Ukraine, Indonesia, India, South Korea and Japan.
“We are facing a public health crisis that calls for solidarity. It’s essential that we all work together.” said Shou Zi Chew, President of International, Xiaomi.
“With so many countries and regions across the world struggling to get access to the appropriate protection to treat COVID-19 patients without putting themselves at risk, we feel alleviating this could be one way in which we make our contribution.”
“Xiaomi and its affiliated Xiaomi Foundation have set about sourcing this batch of masks to be distributed across the Lion City.”
“Today, we are honoured to be able to make our efforts to the NCSS for the benefit of all. As a Singaporean myself, I hope we can do our part to help everyone tide over these difficult times. Stay strong, Singapore.”
