BRUSSELS, March 23 (Xinhua) -- China Construction Bank (Europe) S.A. (CCB) on Monday donated 1,500 medical overalls to Luxembourg to help the country contain the spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus.
These supplies will be distributed to local hospitals by the Luxembourg Ministry of Health.
At a handover ceremony, CCB Europe Chairman Gang Peng said that his institution aimed to assume its corporate social responsibility by making a contribution to the people of Luxembourg.
"The governments and people of Europe gave valuable support to China during its most difficult time. At this crucial moment, when Europe is facing the same problem, China Construction Bank will surely give its full support back," he said.
Coordinated by the CCB's head office in Beijing, the bank has already donated much-needed medical supplies to other European countries like Italy and France.
In addition to these direct donations, the bank says it has also mobilized its global network to help European hospitals and governments source medical supplies to fight the coronavirus pandemic.
