WT sends warmth to frontline healthcare workers with practical action
In May 2021, Taiwan was completely sealed off due to the pandemic with many people working from home. We could only hear the sound of ambulances whistling past, which was terrifying. WT donated epidemic prevention funds and materials amounting to NT$5 million to support front-line epidemic prevention hospitals, fire departments and medical personnel, including the emergency epidemic prevention funds of Shuangho Hospital in New Taipei City and Taipei Medical University’s Emergent Pandemic Prevention Funds , and donated 5,000 pieces of medical isolation protective clothing to En Chu Kong Hospital in New Taipei City.
Based on the business philosophy of giving back to society and fulfilling the local feedback of being kind to our neighbors, we learned that New Taipei City Government Fire Bureau’s Nansei Branch Team 7, as the first-line pandemic prevention force, must take patients to hospitals for treatment. In order to safeguard the team members’ own safety, there was a shortage and an urgent need for the acquisition of protective masks, and WT completed the donation of 48 3M protective masks and filter cotton replacement parts that meet safety and efficient wear in just 45 hours.
In order to encourage and thank the frontline healthcare workers for their sleepless shifts, WT has made a modest effort to provide a weekly lunch to the healthcare workers of Shuangho Hospital to help cheer them up, so that they can safely pass the severe test of the new epidemic during this tense period.
