They have purchased 16,000 masks and other protective materials from China and donated them to 5 hospitals and clinics, as well as the fire station and post office. , Nursing homes and supermarkets.
“We have unique conditions to get a mask. This is a godsend opportunity for the Chinese to give back to the American society with love and enthusiasm, become a part of the society, and improve and establish our image.” Wang Xiaodong told BBC Chinese.
