TAIPEI (The China Post) — The Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC, 中央流行疫情中心) announced on Tuesday that 120,000 people had joined the face masks donation campaign as of Monday evening.

The CECC launched the campaign on Monday in the hope of giving Taiwan nationals an opportunity to lend their hand to other people struggling with the coronavirus pandemic.

The center urged people to support the campaign and keep donating face masks to assist countries struggling with the coronavirus pandemic.

If you are interested in joining this campaign, just follow this link. First, log into the NHI mobile app, click “My Health Bank” and then press “Humanitarian Aid.” Next, click “I agree” and choose whether you want to do an anonymous donation or not.

Only those who don’t use the quota of nine face masks per two weeks can donate their face masks. Health authorities will take people’s donations and the national supply into considerations before they try to donate the face masks to other countries, the head of CECC said yesterday.
