KCCAA Need Your Help To Raise Money To Support Our Local Hospitals Fight Against Coronavirus

共渡难关 守望相助倡议书

两个月前,国内武汉等地冠状病毒疫情严峻,KCCAA向堪城华人发出捐款购物倡议后,得到了大家云集响应,总共筹得善款约$23000,2月上旬我们争分夺秒购买了4000多个护目镜,支援了10家武汉和周边地区医院,过些天我们会将详细情况公告给大家。如大家所知,目前国内疫情得到很好的控制,防护用品得到很大改善,日前支援国内的航空运输非常有限,可疫情在全球扩散,在美蔓延,纽约已经进入重大灾难紧急状况,最近 KCCAA再度收到广大华人的呼吁和医疗工作者的请求支援,我们决定紧急行动起来,向缺乏物资的美国医疗机构伸出援手,经过KCCAA board 讨论,提议将后续收到善款约$8000用于支援美国本土医护人员抗疫,希望得到大家的理解和支持。

Two months ago, the outbreak of the coronavirus spread quickly in Wuhan and other places in China. KCCAA called for a donation among the local Chinese community to purchase medical goggles to send back to China, We, overwhelmingly received a great deal of support from everyone in the area, raising a total of approximately $ 23,000. In early February we purchased more than 4,000 medical goggles supporting 10 hospitals in Wuhan and surrounding areas. We will announce more of the details in a few days. Thankfully, the current situation in China has been reported to be well under control and the protective equipment supply has been greatly improved. However, the pandemic has spread globally, including the United States. Now KCCAA is calling on our Chinese community, friends and businesses in the greater Kansas City area again. This time it is to support our local medical workers. We decided to act urgently to reach out to our local medical institutes that are facing supply shortages of protective equipment. The KCCAA board proposed to use the remaining funds from our fundraising efforts for Wuhan to now support our local medical staff fighting the pandemic.

各位亲们,2个月前我们出生的中国有难,我们义不容辞解救,如今我们生活的美国家园,遭受到瘟疫侵袭,我们定当责无旁贷,在这里KCCAA号召华人继续捐款,向美国社区彰显华人的热血之心,让我们一起努力守候我们的医护工作者,为抗击美国的疫情献上我们的赤诚仁爱之心,也许我们所做的只是杯水车薪,但我们将不懈努力,KCCAA将凝心聚力与大家联手打满抗疫全场,不获全胜,决不收兵!

America is where we live and the home we love and believe our help is needed right now! KCCAA calls on our Chinese community, friends and local businesses to continue donating and to show our love and care to the local community in supporting our local health care workers and offering our sincere support to fight this epidemic. We hope to get your generous support!

天佑美国!
天佑中国!
天佑这片土地上的每一个人!

Every day, we hear about the corona virus raging in China.  More than 46,000 people have been infected and over 1000 have died.  Chinese health officials are working to contain Covid-19 and other countries are taking precautionary measures to avoid a disastrous global pandemic.  Until only a few weeks ago, no one could have foreseen the magnitude of this catastrophe.  Medical facilities in Wuhan and the rest of Hubei province are overwhelmed despite massive emergency help from other parts of China and the rest of the world. 

Recognizing the urgent need for medical supplies in Wuhan, The Kansas City Chinese American Association(KCCAA) communicated with medical professionals in China to ascertain which supplies are needed most.  It was determined that there is an ongoing, urgent need for protective equipment such as goggles, disinfectants and masks for the front-line doctors and rescue workers.  Understandably, very few of these items are available for purchase in China now.  Therefore, the KCCAA has searched the US market for these much-needed materials which meet Chinese medical standards.  We determined that medical googles were the most readily available top-of-the-list item.  They are urgently needed in the hospitals where hundreds are admitted daily.  The Alumni Association of Wuhan University (New York) and Cainiao Logistics are helping the KCCAA to transport the supplies to Wuhan. 

It is the goal of the KCCAA to raise enough funds to purchase 5000 medial googles for the facilities in and around Wuhan.  The first consignment of 1000 protective googles are already on their way.  The US manufacturers of these googles are currently increasing production to meet domestic and international demand. 

Today (February 12th), Chinese health officials reported 14,840 new cases and 242 additional deaths due to Covid-19 (as reported by CNBC). Chinese health workers are giving their all to contain this virus before it reaches us.  We need everyone’s help to defeat this epidemic now!
