Thank You! To Our Parents and Partners

To our amazing parents and partners who donated large numbers of face masks and protective gloves to support the Concordia community's health and well-being. Several families generously gave masks and PPE to Concordia to help prepare for school reopening after the initial Shanghai lockdown due to COVID-19.

Responding to the needs of those affected by the virus, our community expressed a desire to help and we implemented Jiayou China, a fundraising effort to support CWEF and SEDF as they bring medical supplies to crisis areas and provide support to medical professionals serving the affected. 130,000 RMB was donated to support their COVID-19 efforts.
