By Zoila Palma: Today, the Taiwan Embassy in Belize donated 5,000 made-in-Taiwan surgical masks to the Belize Customs and Excise Department.
Taiwan’s ambassador to Belize, David Kuan-Chou Chien, handed over the masks to Estella Bailey-Leslie, Comptroller of the Belize Customs and Excise Department, to assist in protecting the frontline customs officers while they carry out their duties at the borders and the Philip Goldson International Airport.
This is the second donation made to the Belize Custom Department.
In June, 2020, the Embassy handed over 10,000 Made-in-Taiwan surgical masks and 25 infrared forehead thermometers.
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Taiwan has made numerous donations of medical equipment to the Government of Belize including surgical masks, N-95 masks, infrared forehead thermometers, protective clothing, isolation gowns, automatic nucleic acid (PCR) analyzers, PCR testing kits, and nasal swabs, in support of the efforts of the Government of Belize and the Ministry of Health and Wellness of Belize to contain the COVID-19 pandemic.
Most recently, the Embassy handed over additional medical equipment and supplies to Michel Chebat, Minister of Health and Wellness of Belize on April 29, 2021.
A statement from the Embassy says that it appreciates Belize’s staunch support of Taiwan’s participation in the World Health Organization (WHO) and its annual Assembly, its meetings, mechanisms, and activities.
“Through its Embassy in Belize, the Government of Taiwan will continue to work closely with its partners in the Government of Belize to weather this catastrophic pandemic,” the statement said.
