The rally for donations was Business China’s response to the Singapore government’s call and Singapore Red Cross Society’s appeal for contributions to help communities in China affected by the novel coronavirus outbreak.

Business China CEO, Tin Pei Ling, said, “We are heartened and encouraged by the very positive response from our members and from friends outside Business China’s network. We thank them for stepping forth. Pledges and donations continue to come through, and we continue to urge members and friends to respond to our appeal. Every contribution is a show of strength and solidarity, as the Singapore community supports China and the world in fighting the novel coronavirus.”
