南安華人協會和學生一起抗擊歧視 Chinese Association of Southampton and Students Fight against Discrimination

A hate crime was committed by a group of teenagers against 4 Chinese university students (3 females and 1 male) at a private accommodation near Southampton city centre on Tue 17/3/2020. The case was reported to the police promptly. The Chinese Association of Southampton (CAS) and the Chinese Students and Scholars Association (CSSA-Soton) were also contacted. The CAS, CSSA-Soton and local Chinese residents/students have had a meeting with the student victims and police officers at the Szechuan Kitchen restaurant on Wed 18/3/2020. Some students joined the meeting through a mobilephone app. Student victims were reassured that the community and the police are working closely to support them against any hate crime. Everyone in the U.K. including foreign students are treated equally under the Bristish law. Police has increased the patrol at the vicinity of the affected student accommodation. The University of Southampton has condemned this incident of abuse targeted at members of the student community. The University Wellbeing team are in contact with the students to ensure that they are fully supported.

It is very unfortunate that COVID-19, which was first reported in China, has been linked to the Chinese people. However, not even the World Health Organization (WHO) is able to confirm the original source of COVID-19. As the pandemic worsen, hate crimes against innocent Chinese people has also risen. This is partly due to biased viewpoints by certain personnel as well as fake news and half-truth from social media. China is as big as Europe. Having a few bad people in Europe does not mean that all Europeans are bad. Similarly, finding a few bad Chinese people doesn’t mean that all Chinese people are bad.

At this difficult time, innocent people suffer from hate crime, naive people are misguided by half-truth… However, we are part of a big family, irrespective of skin-colour, language and culture. We all share the same DNA that could be infected by COVID-19. Instead of pointing fingers at certain group of people, we should care for each other as brothers and sisters, as parents and children, as friends and neighbours. The common enemy is COVID-19, not the innocent people on the street who also share the same fear as you and me. The innocent Chinese students suffering from hate crime also have parents, and in fact their parents might be suffering from COVID-19 right now in China.

According to the 2011 Census, the number of Chinese populations was about one percent of the total population. The current population of Southampton is about 250,000 people. We estimate that there are about 2500 Chinese people living in Southampton plus over 3,200 Chinese students from the University of Southampton in the 2019/2020 academic year. Students are very important for the university, in terms of finance and also in research. There are also local Chinese people working in the U.K. as businessmen, doctors, lawyers, professors, police officers etc.

Let us work together for a better world and a better future.

Dr Michael Ng

The Chinese Association of Southampton and student organizers from the University of Southampton have raised over £10,000 to fight against the corona virus epidemic. Thanks to our police friend in Beijing, who checked the reliability of the seller. We are grateful to three lawyer friends from Hong Kong, China and the UK for their assistance in checking and perfecting the purchase contracts. Thanks to our student organisers for finding reliable supplies as well as to committee members of the Chinese Association for their participation in the campaign. We appreciate the cooperation of the sellers as well as various helps from the Volunteer Alliance in China and from hospital volunteers. It is encouraging to see supports coming from all corners of the world, when  a disaster happened.

On 2nd March 2020, our first batch of purchase in terms of 300 protective suits was successfully delivered to the Xinyang Central Hospital; on 9th March 2020,  our second batch of purchase in terms of two breathing machines was delivered to the Xinyang Central Hospital.

信阳市是在河南省离湖北省最近的一个内陆城市,由于在武汉工作和读书的很多,现在当地是河南省确诊病例最多的城市,情况非常严重,但是外援很少。
Xinyang City is the closest city in Henan Province to Hubei Province. Many people from Xinyang work and study in Wuhan. As a consequence, the city has the most confirmed COVID-19 cases in Henan Province, but foreign aid to Xinyang City is lacking.

Fighting the Novel Coronavirus and Protecting Medical Staff. We call for your action!

Foreword:
The medical staff have always been there as our health guardians, it is now time for us to guard them and be their strongest backup!

At the end of 2019, the outbreak of the 2019-nCoV in Hubei, China, caught the attention of Chinese people all around the world. Since the outbreak of the epidemic, we have been following the news closely, feeling worried about the spread of the virus, distressed by the suffering of our compatriots, and concerned about the health and safety of all frontline medical staff.

Currently thousands of medical staff are fighting relentlessly in the frontline against the virus day and night to protect us, taking huge health risks whilst separated from their families and friends. Although distance separates us, the Chinese community in Southampton wishes to support the honorable medical staff by helping to reduce their infection risks through adequate access to essential protective medical supplies.

Recently, almost all the hospitals in the affected areas in China are facing desperate shortages of medical supplies. Many hospitals in Wuhan, Xiaogan, Xinyang, and Wenzhou have run out of protective medical equipment and have started to call for help from the global community through their official channels. The Chinese Association of Southampton is now in contact with British medical material manufacturers, international logistic suppliers, and the mainland hospitals facing scarce medical shortages to find ways to replenish critical supplies from the UK. To accelerate our efforts, we are calling for your help to enable us to procure and deliver more medical equipment for the mainland hospitals needing help.

(Due to medical supplies shortage, medical staff use medical alcohol to disinfect the protective glasses and use them repeatedly, photo taken by China Daily.)

We are hereby formally launching a fundraising campaign to help fight against the 2019-nCoV epidemic, and are calling for help from all the overseas Chinese, students, and friends in Southampton and the United Kingdom who wish to join our efforts. Every pound you donate will make a difference to protect the safety of the frontline hospital and medical staff. We need and appreciate your help!
