The COVID-19 outbreak has now hit many parts of the globe. Due to the rapid spread of the pandemic, many cities around the world have been working hard to prevent the spread and protect their citizens. The outbreak and subsequent efforts to curb the spread of the virus in communities has caused a huge increase in global demand for masks. Many people across different countries around the world, including Canada, are facing a face mask shortage.
The Canadian government has prioritized the prevention of community spread amongst the nation. There are still many people in desperate need of masks, including the vulnerable such as the poor, homeless and senior citizens.
As one of the only Alberta Accredited International schools in mainland China, our school has close ties with Canada. Therefore, our Student Council Presidents decided to help our friends, family and colleagues in Canada as they struggle to prevent further COVID-19 spread. Now is more important than ever to help those in need. With this opportunity, our student council is going to donate face masks to Old Strathcona Youth Society in Edmonton, Alberta.
This donation is in partnership with CanCham PRD. Our school is proud to be a founding member of this Chamber. The existence of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce is due to the work of dedicated volunteers and the grassroots support of the Canadian business community. It exists to serve and support its members and is committed to maintaining true relationships with expats and entrepreneurs who have inspired them. The Canadian Chamber of Commerce has been working hard with entrepreneurs in China and Canada to obtain a supply of medical masks and the means to send them to Canada.
The Strathcona Youth Society was selected as our charitable organization of choice because it supports young people in Alberta. The Society exists to support at-risk and homeless youth. The Strathcona Youth Society was created to help keep youth safe, to grow, be supported, and to build safe and caring relationships.
The CIS Student Council intends to raise 24,120 RMB by June 30, 2020. Proceeds will be used to pay for the masks that will be delivered to the Strathcona Youth Society in Edmonton through the Canadian Chamber. Please refer to the code below to donate to this worthy cause. We are looking forward to the participation of students and parents because “Education is Love” and we are so fortunate to be able to take care of those in need.
