NANJING, April 6 (Xinhua) -- A town in the city of Kunshan, eastern China's Jiangsu Province, has donated a batch of medical supplies to assist Spain in fighting against the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the city government said Monday.
The supplies donated by Qiandeng Town, including 50,000 disposable masks, 5,000 gloves and 5,000 protective suits, were sent to the Shanghai Office of Mondragon Corporation, one of the leading Spanish business groups.
Igor Eceiza, general manager of Orkli Electronics (Kunshan) Co., Ltd, affiliated to Mondragon Corporation, said that the important thing is that Kunshan and Qiandeng donated the medical stuff although they are also in great demand of them.
"We believe that two countries can pull through and overcome the epidemic."
Since the epidemic outbreak in January, many Spanish enterprises in the Kunshan Mondragon Industrial Park, located in Qiandeng Town, have donated medical supplies to the local government.
Last month, Mondragon Corporation as well as its Shanghai Office donated 2,960 KN95 masks, 100 protective suits and disinfectants to Qiandeng Town. Mondragon Assembly (Kunshan) Co., Ltd also donated 10,000 medical masks to the town.
In 2010, the Kunshan Mondragon Industrial Park was jointly established by Kunshan government and Mondragon, a corporation and federation of worker cooperatives based in the Basque region of Spain.
