    Masks donated from Taiwan to Japan as ‘thank you’ for vaccine (2021/07/22)

    Friendly assistance between Taiwan and Japan continues. This time a Taiwanese dentist has organized a donation of 200,000 face masks to Japan. The scheme was inspired by the recent donations of vaccines from Japan that have invigorated Taiwan's vaccine drive. The masks will be shared between Tokyo, where the Olympics are a major COVID concern, and Minamisoma, a city in Fukushima Prefecture, that recently suffered a serious outbreak of the virus.

    Japan has donated three batches of AstraZeneca vaccines to Taiwan. That prompted Pan Yu-min to organize this charity drive to donate masks as a thank you. The 200,000 masks will help protect athletes and locals during the Tokyo Olympics.

    This is about saving lives. That’s something we doctors thoroughly understand. So back then, some people put an advert in the Japanese newspapers thanking Japan. But an advert is only good for two or three days. I think, couldn’t we do something more practical?

    When it first began, Dr. Pan Yu-min contacted us and asked what would be the best way to express gratitude. Well, the simplest, fastest, best method is made-in-Taiwan masks.

    The Taiwan Dental Association, as well as the dental school alumni associations of seven of Taiwan’s top universities, all chipped in. Pan also got help from his university classmate Dr. Seei Hirouchi, now working in Japan. On July 19, the masks arrived: 100,000 for Tokyo, and 100,000 for Minamisoma, which has recently suffered a worrying outbreak.

    The design on the mask was designed by Dr. Lin Chien-ju. Mount Fuji represents Japan, and the Formosan Black Bear. It says “Thank You,” and expresses Taiwan-Japan friendship.

    Voice of Dr. Seei Hirouchi

    I contacted the mayor of Minamisoma, and they were extremely happy and surprised to be suddenly sent a shipment of masks.

    Dr. Hirouchi has been working in Japan for the last 42 years, but was happy to support the scheme as a top priority. As COVID continues to spread back and forth across the world, we’ll all need to pull together.
