The foundations have reached out to the governments of Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines and proposed the donation of medical supplies. The foundations’ goal is to aid the fight against the coronavirus in these nations, with more support for other neighboring countries to follow.

“We join hands with our Asian neighbors to fight COVID-19,” the Jack Ma Foundation announced. “We and the Alibaba Foundation will send 2 million masks, 150,000 test kits, 20,000 protective suits and 20,000 face shields to Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines and Thailand. More help to other Asian nations is on the way! Go Asia!” 

The foundation’s donations follow Wednesday’s release of a digital handbook they supported. It shares key lessons and experience from doctors and other medical administrators and staff at a Chinese hospital at the frontline of COVID-19 treatment.
