Saturday, May 16th, 2020
In a brief handing-over ceremony held on May 13, 2020, in Taipei, Taiwan, the Ambassador of Belize to the Republic of China (Taiwan) H.E. Diane Haylock received, on behalf of the Government of Belize, 200 protective gowns and 5,000 medical gloves from the Rotary Club of Taipei Nanlung. The donation was an initiative of a Taiwanese-Belizean, Mr. Feng-Yi Chang.
Ambassador Haylock expressed her appreciation for the assistance Taiwan continues to extend to Belize. She informed the group of five Rotarians that after the first COVID-19 case was confirmed in Belize, Taiwan was the first country to donate masks and other medical equipment to the Government of Belize.
After receiving the medical supplies, Ambassador Haylock presented the Rotary members with certificates of appreciation, reiterating that the Government and people of Belize are honoured to have the support of Taiwan and appreciate the demonstration of friendship to Belize from the small island nation.
