The Chinese Association of Southampton appreciates the following organizations, community groups and individuals for their support, care and loving messages.
Firstly on behalf of all my team members for our noble cause called
🇬🇧 PROTECT OUR FRONTLINERS IN THE UK
We would like to say a very big thank you 🙏 to you personally and to the Chinese Association of Southampton for your support to helping us protect our frontliners.
You both were one of first to donate to our cause and that was so very much appreciated.
With donations like yours we have since bought 3x3D printers and materials and have started making face visors as shown above that was designed by Rohan who is one of our team members.
We have also opened a GoFundMe site and in the past week have raised over £2500 so far which is amazing and we are always grateful to any further donations to help our cause.
This will enable us to continue to provide visors masks and gloves to frontliners such as GP Carers, Paramedics , Pharmacists, Nurses ,Shop keepers and Hospital staff.
To date we have provided visors to St Andrews surgery in Eastleigh and with the help of another voluntary group will also be providing visors and masks to 5 care homes in Chandlers Ford.
We are grateful for any support from anyone and especially need to acquire surgical masks and washable masks (to give to care homes when we deliver the visors as both are required for protection ), gloves , scrubs and hair caps.
We are now prioritising GP practices and care homes in Chandlers Ford and Boyatt wood which are in Eastleigh and also Salisbury areas.
Once again thank you so much for your support and generosity
Keep safe and God Bless
From all the team of
PROTECT OUR FRINTLINERS IN THE UK🇬🇧

Please accept this email as a message of support to members of your organisation.
We are deeply disturbed by reports in the local press about instances of racist abuse in the city directed towards people of Chinese and Asian heritage in relation to novel coronavirus.
We believe that alarmist headlines and stories in the media, portraying coronavirus as a “Chinese virus” or pointing to cultural reasons why the virus has spread, are leading to increased levels of racism towards people of Chinese and Asian heritage, which cannot be tolerated.
We think it is important that any racist abuse or attacks are publicly challenged and are prepared to help mount a campaign with you to do this. If you would like to explore the idea of a local campaign, or have any other ideas about how the wider community in Southampton can demonstrate their solidarity with the local Chinese community at this time, we would be very happy to meet with representatives of your organisation to discuss this further.
We would be grateful if you would communicate our support to members of your organisation and look forward to hearing from you in due course about a possible meeting.
Yours in solidarity,
Secretary, Southampton Stand Up To Racism
