Short Story

As the novel Coronavirus rages on and decimates an increasing number of lives, China’s central government is devoting most of its resources to help the city of Wuhan and Hubei Province. Hence, lower tier cities like Xinyang lack the resources to handle the COVID-19 outbreak. With a population of 7 million people in the city of Xinyang, it has only 9 operative hospitals that are able to treat coronavirus patients. Having been in communication with Mr Wang XinHui (王新会), the vice mayor of Xinyang city in Henan province, it has been confirmed that the city of Xinyang is in urgent need of help.

 

See below the WeChat post by the Xinyang government appealing for help:

Where is Xinyang?

Xinyang is a Tier 3 city with a population of approximately 7 mln, located at the border between Hubei province and Henan province. Although Xinyang is located at the most southern part of Henan province, it is more closely related to Wuhan than the northern cities of Henan due to its culture and geographical location. Situated only 200km from Wuhan, the high speed train journey from Wuhan to Xinyang takes only 40 minutes, while a journey from Xinyang to Zhengzhou (the capital of Henan province) takes 1.5 hours.

Campaign Story

AID XINYANG is an initiative by Tan Teng Boo, partnered with Capital Dynamics, GoCare, and CRSM, to assist the front line medical staff of Xinyang that are fighting the COVID-19 virus outbreak.

Instead of merely being fearful of the COVID-19 virus, Tan Teng Boo decided that we should lend a helping hand to the people in China. Upon speaking with the vice mayor of Xinyang, he found out that Xinyang is not receiving sufficient resources as the Chinese government have been devoting most of its resources to aid Wuhan and Hubei. Therefore, he initiated this project named “Aid Xinyang”.

In the fight against the COVID-19, the biggest challenge is the shortage of medical supplies/consumables globally. Tan Teng Boo would like to unite efforts to provide help and support to the hospitals in Xinyang, with the aim of saving more lives and preventing medical staff being infected.

Tan Teng Boo is the Managing Director of Capital Dynamics. Regulated by the Monetary Authority of Singapore, Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission, Australia Securities and Investments Commission and Securities Commission of Malaysia, Capital Dynamics is Asia’s first global investment management and advisory firm. He is licensed in his individual capacity as fund manager in Malaysia, Hong Kong and Australia. For more information about Mr Tan and Capital Dynamics, please visit www.capitaldynamics.biz

 

Goals

a. Use the funds raised to purchase medical supplies (N95 masks, medical goggles, protective suits) for the frontline medical staff and send them to designated hospitals in Xinyang and/or Xinyang City Red Cross Organization (信阳市红十字会) and Xinyang City Central Charity Organization (信阳市慈善总会)

 

b. Raise funds from the public to be channeled to either one of the 2 official organizations in Xinyang City: Xinyang City Red Cross Organization (信阳市红十字会) and Xinyang City Central Charity Organization (信阳市慈善总会)

Q&A

  1. How can I be assured that my donation will be put to good use?            

Mr Tan has the full discretion as to how the donations will be utilized in line with the goals of the Aid Xinyang campaign. However, he is required to provide supporting documents regarding the utilization of the funds.

 

  1. What are the payment charges?

For donations made through GoCare, GoCare will absorb all processing fees charged by the payment gateway. Thus, donors do not bear any payment charges.

 

  1. Can I donate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) such as masks, medical goggles, hand sanitizer, etc. instead of giving monetary support?

Yes, we are actively seeking for medical supplies. For more information, please refer to our website at http://aidxinyang.com/

 

  1. Can I make a cash donation?

Yes, you can donate in cash. However, you must proceed to GoCare headquarters to make a cash donation. Location details as below:

Tingkat 12, Wisma MCA

No.163, Jalan Ampang,

50450 Kuala Lumpur

Malaysia

 

  1. I wish to donate more than RM1,000. Can I go through GoCare?

You are highly encouraged to directly transfer to GoCare’s bank account. As GoCare absorbs all processing charges, the 2.5%-3% fees resulting from your large donation will be expensive for them to cover.

 

  1. What if the total funds raised exceed the target amount?

Funds collected in excess of the targeted amount will be donated to Xinyang Red Cross and Xinyang City Central Charity Organisation.

 

  1. Is my donation tax-exempted?

Unfortunately, your donation is not tax-exempted as the beneficiaries (Xinyang Red Cross and Xinyang City Central Charity Organization) do not have the tax-exemption status in Malaysia.
