  • On February 20, 2021, in conjunction with Taiwan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Medtecs Group, a leading personal protective equipment (PPE) supplier headquartered in Taiwan, donated coveralls, isolation gowns and other COVID-19-related PPE to the Kingdom of Eswatini, the Republic of Somaliland and the Commonwealth of Saint Lucia in partnership with TSMC Charity Foundation.

On February 20, 2021, in conjunction with Taiwan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Medtecs Group, a leading personal protective equipment (PPE) supplier headquartered in Taiwan, donated coveralls, isolation gowns and other COVID-19-related PPE to the Kingdom of Eswatini, the Republic of Somaliland and the Commonwealth of Saint Lucia in partnership with TSMC Charity Foundation. The donation was designed to help the Taiwan government fulfill its Taiwan Can Help pledge.

Given Taiwan’s outstanding performance in containing COVID-19 and the relatively abundant supply of protective equipment and clothing locally, Medtecs decided to join forces with the TSMC Charity Foundation to support the Taiwan Can Help diplomatic initiative in conjunction with Taiwan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs by identifying and assisting countries that were in need of PPE. The donation comprised 150,000 surgical masks, 7,000 coveralls, 11,000 isolation gowns, 6,000 caps, 6,000 sets of shoe covers and 1,500 CoverU Jackes (flight suits). The items will be distributed across the three countries, all of which are struggling to cope with the COVID-19 crisis. TSMC Charity Foundation had generously paid for the shipping costs of the donated goods.

“Medtecs has been the leading partner and prime vendor for Taiwan government’s national stockpiles of strategic goods, including PPE, for more than 10 years, and we are honored to be given the opportunity to join in the government’s efforts to help combat COVID-19 worldwide,” said Medtecs CEO William Yang. “Medtecs has long dedicated itself to creating value not just for our shareholders but for communities where we have operations and offices. Now we’re taking a step further and expanding our humanitarian reach by working side-by-side with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the TSMC Charity Foundation to coordinate and sponsor the donation of Medtecs’s safety products and protective clothing at an international level. In particular, we would like to thank Chairperson of the Foundation, Ms Sophie Chang, for her advice and for sharing her experiences in corporate philanthropy.”

Medtecs has always been at the forefront of the fight against viral outbreaks, be it SARS (2003), H1N1 (2009) or Ebola (2014). Ever since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020, the Group has mobilized its resources and distribution centers around the world to provide much needed PPE to over 30 countries, including United States, Germany, Italy, Cambodia, Taiwan and the Philippines, to just name a few. To date, Medtecs has donated over 5 million medical-grade face masks as well as more than 30,000 isolation gowns, and 20,000 coveralls, among other health products, to under-resourced communities and regions worldwide.

This round of donations to the Kingdom of Eswatini, the Republic of Somaliland and the Commonwealth of Saint Lucia is but another example of  Medtecs’s commitment to safeguarding the health and safety of humanity by providing effective and comfortable protective clothing and equipment through a resilient supply chain.

“With uncertainty surrounding the vaccine roll-out in different parts of the world, high-quality, top performing PPE remains the most direct and effective tool for minimizing the risk of infection and controlling the pandemic,” added Mr. Yang.
