Overseas Chinese are joining in the battle against the COVID-19 outbreak. When the epidemic took place in China, they spared no effort to purchase the much needed medical supplies and ship back and donate the goods to their motherland in spite of transportation difficulties.

As the virus is spreading across the world, they are now busy helping each other with available resources, finding new protective supplies for fellow countrymen most in need, and transferring donations from China to local hospitals.
