Sun Jiguo, a volunteer in a motorcade to guard Wuhan medics, came from Linyi in Shandong Province. He learned from TV news that the COVID-19 outbreak in Wuhan was severe and wanted to provide some help. So he came all the way to the epicenter with Xu Deqiang, the husband of another clerk in Sun's shop.

Carrying 40 sets of goggles, 200 pieces of anti-fog wipes, three boxes of eye rinse liquid, and as much as 1,000 kg in oranges, Sun and Xu arrived in Wuhan. At first they had to sleep in the car, but knowing their circumstances, local authorities helped arrange for their accommodations. They were responsible for picking up the medics after they got off work as well as transporting supplies and donations to the hospitals.

"The people in Wuhan have really endured great pain. I do not have professional skills like a top doctor and have no knowledge of medicine development. I am just a driver, sometimes a loader, and I can do nothing else but to try my best to deliver the supplies to the front lines and help more people," said Sun in the interview.

Sun added that China is like a big family. "When seeing your brothers and sisters suffering, everyone wants to make his or her own contribution to help the family pull through together, as soon as possible," he said.

In his words, doing even a small favor matters. All the volunteers aiding Wuhan will stand together through thick and thin. Click on the video for more details.
