I thought of the time when our Wenchuan county was struck by the great earthquake, an Italian rescue team was the first expert team from Western countries to arrive at the scene,”Xiang said.When Xiang forwarded the article to relevant departments of the school and parent representatives to get opinions about donating supplies to Italy, in return she received full support.A student of the elementary school of Sichuan Normal University Experimental Foreign Language School uses a drawing to cheer on Italy in its fight against COVID-19. (Photo/Beijing Youth Daily)”Parents have made great efforts to facilitate the whole process,” Xiang disclosed, stressing that the care behind their actions couldnt have been successfully conveyed to the Italian people without the perseverance of these parents.In an effort to ensure high-quality masks, parents verified and compared qualifications of more than 10 face mask factories, finally selecting a local supplier that had been taken over by the government, according to Xiang.The Consulate General of Italy in southwest Chinas Chongqing municipality thanked the school for its donations via its official account on Chinese social media platform Sina Weibo, on April 15. var addthis_config = {“data_track_addressbar”:false};(For the latest China news, Please follow Peoples Daily on Twitter and Facebook)(Web editor: Hongyu, Bianji)Add your comment/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var shortname=window.location.host;var disqus_shortname=;var disqus_identifier=;if (shortname==en.people.cn){disqus_shortname=enpeople;disqus_identifier = 9683363;}/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function() {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = // + disqus_shortname + .disqus.com/embed.js;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.Related readingDonations to South Africa from Chinese corporation to help the vulnerable fight COVID-19WHO spokesperson underlines importance to fight against “infodemic”Op-ed: Virus tracing must be science-basedChinese NGOs provide care packages to refugees in LebanonChina calls for higher capability, wider range of COVID-19 testingUnity and cooperation are the international community’s most potent weapon to overcome the pandemicDiary of a Chinese student battling epidemic in the U.S.Chinese college students provide free online tutoring to families affected by COVID-19Chinas quick containment of COVID-19 sets encouraging example for other countries: LancetHebei promotes cleaner eating habits in wake of COVID-19We RecommendGiant pandas play in Foping County, NW China
