HANGZHOU, March 13 (Xinhua) -- The Jack Ma Foundation and Alibaba Foundation will donate 1 million masks and 500,000 testing kits to the United States, said Jack Ma on Weibo, a leading Chinese social media platform, on Friday.
Ma said he hopes the donations will help Americans fight against the epidemic.
Over the past few weeks, the Jack Ma Foundation and Alibaba Foundation have collaborated to source and donate much-needed materials to afflicted areas in Japan, the Republic of Korea, Italy, Iran and Spain, to help them combat COVID-19.
"This crisis presents a huge challenge to all humankind in a globalized world. The pandemic we face today can no longer be resolved by any individual country," said Jack Ma on Twitter. "Rather, we need to combat the virus by working hand-in-hand."
