 The Vatican donated 700000 masks to China: hope to reach the epidemic area as soon as possible


Father Han duo, the vice dean of the missionary college in Rome, is one of the leaders of the donation. He told the global times that the donation was strongly supported by Cardinal Konrad krajewski, chairman of the suzerain relief center, and the Vatican pharmacy. The Chinese Christian Church in Italy also actively participated in the donation.

Since January 27, Vatican pharmacies have been shopping for masks in large quantities all over Italy. Vatican and Chinese Christian Church have funded the purchase of these masks. On the first day, they collected more than 100000. Due to the slow domestic logistics in Italy, the Vatican also sent cars to transport masks collected from various places directly to Rome, so as to send them to China as soon as possible.

The process of transporting masks back to China was also supported by all parties, including China Southern Airlines, which provided free shipping of overseas aid materials. Some tour guides who returned from Italy said that even if they paid for luggage, they would also help to transport the masks back to China, which made Handal very touched.

According to Handal, they consulted doctors in China in advance, so they bought high-quality FFP2 and ffp3 masks. After arriving in China, the masks were sent to Hubei, Zhejiang and Fujian.
