Hape International donates funds to help combat coronavirus outbreak

Published on: 25th February 2020

The donation is designated to purchase medical equipment, compensate medical workers, and aid the demand for protective equipment.

On 30th January, toy manufacturer Hape International donated a portion of its $5m charitable fund to combat the outbreak of the New Coronavirus Pneumonia (NCP), making the company the first foreign-invested enterprise in Beilun, China, to make a donation.

The donation is designated to purchase medical equipment, compensate medical workers, and ease the surging demand for protective equipment. The company said: “We know that without the support and empowerment of the community, Hape could never make such a contribution. Now it’s our turn to repay society.”

Hape is also working closely with the local government and the community, strictly following the epi-control policies, and keeping close track of the health and travel conditions of its staff in China, building a solid supervision system to guarantee a safe path during this difficult period.
