In 2008, the Chinese Association of Southampton organized a large-scale donation to help the victims of the Sichuan earthquake, raising a total of £ 19,058.15.
Unfortunately, China is now facing a novel coronavirus epidemic. The Chinese Association of Southampton committee is working with students from the University of Southampton and the Mayor of Southampton Cllr. Peter Baillie to fight the epidemic. Student organizers include: Luo Feifei, Wang Shuxian, Han Xujing, Wang Huailin, Yang Kaikai, Luo Yubo, Guo Qiyue etc.
On 11th February 2020, the Chinese Association of Southampton and Southampton University students have met the Mayor of Southampton Cllr. Peter Baillie at Southampton Civic Centre. Our fundraising to fight the epidemic has received the full support from the Mayor. I hope that kind-hearted people from all walks of life can join our effort and work together to fight the epidemic!
Updates: By 4th March 2020, we have managed to raise £10097.09 (see the donation list at the end of this page).
