Flagging Off Surgical Masks to Xiangtan University

Published

on

I have had the pleasure to flag-off 4,000 pieces of surgical masks donated by the Makerere University community to Xiangtan University, our main collaborating university in China where more than 60 Ugandans mostly from Makerere University are studying. ‬

Makerere University is very concerned with the devastation that the Coronavirus has caused and we have already sent our solidarity message to the people of the People’s Republic of China and Xiangtan University in particular, with whom we collaborate under the Confucius Institute. As a further show of solidarity, we want to send this token of support to Xiangtan University, which we hope will help to further fight against this virus. Our ultimate hope is that the virus will be defeated very soon. We are confident with the measures that have been taken by the Chinese Government so far.

Prof. Barnabas Nawangwe and Dr. Gilbert Gomoshabe (2nd Right) with the Confucius Institute at Makerere University Team during the flagging off ceremony on 24th February 2020.

I want to send our message of solidarity to President Li Bochao and all the student and staff of Xiangtan University and through them, to the people of China. We are in solidarity with you and we wish you success in the fight against the Coronavirus.
