The Starbucks Foundation will contribute $1 million to Give2Asia to fund a project focused on supporting front line medical workers, and further strengthening grassroots disease prevention and control capabilities in China to safeguard the future of local communities in the country.

The move is part of the foundation's donation of more than $3 million to support community response efforts globally.

In China, where early signs of recovery from COVID-19 are showing, the donation will help provide training to doctors in less developed areas on prevention, diagnosis and treatment of coronavirus and other respiratory diseases; educate local communities on disease prevention; and offer free counseling to healthcare workers psychologically impacted by COVID-19.

The donation follows Starbucks China's 3 million yuan donation to the China Red Cross Foundation. This donation was issued in the early days of the COVID-19 outbreak in China to help provide essential supplies and to protect and support the medical personnel working tirelessly at the front line in Hubei province.

"When we look back at over 70 days and nights since the outbreak of the coronavirus epidemic, what we should remember is not only the difficulties and challenges we've been through, but our reflections and experiences gained," said Belinda Wong, chairman and executive officer of Starbucks China.

"Starbucks is donating to proactive and effective charitable programs in the hope to further improve disease prevention and control capacities in public health areas including major breaking respiratory diseases at grassroots level hospitals and communities, and contribute to efforts in building an even stronger disease control and prevention system in the country."

In addition to these donations, Starbucks China has so far delivered more than 10,0000 bottles of ready-to-drink coffee to medical workers and community volunteers in China. Starbucks' employees across the country have taken initiatives in more than 400 activities such as giving free brewed coffee to front line medical workers.
