CoVid-19 Aid China Xinyang Fundrasing Campaign 中国信阳援助众筹运动
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:
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.
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
