India too: virus support from Jack Ma charities

Two charities endowed by South China Morning Post owner Jack Ma have given 150,000 COVID-19 test kits to four southeast Asia nations and followed this up with medical supplies to seven more nations, including India and Vietnam.

The Jack Ma Foundation and Alibaba Foundation announced the proposed donation of medical supplies to Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines, with "more support for neighbouring countries to follow".

Ma said Jack Ma Foundation and Alibaba Foundation would send two million masks, 150,000 test kits, 20,000 protective suits and 20,000 face shields to Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines and Thailand.

"More help to other Asian nations is on the way!"

The foundation donations follow Wednesday's supported release of a digital handbook sharing experience from doctors and other medical administrators and frontline staff at a Chinese hospital.

• At the end of this month, the foundations donated 1.7 million face masks and 165,000 test kits to India, Vietnam, Bhutan, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan.
