  HELSINKI, June 17 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Association of Science and Technology in Finland (CASTF) on Wednesday received a shipment of COVID-19 protection supplies from China's Hubei province, the association told Xinhua.

  Donated by the government of Hubei province, the protection supplies included 20,000 surgical masks and some 10,000 other protection gears.

  "These supplies will be attributed to governing units of our association as well as members and other overseas Chinese in Finland who had assisted Hubei in the early stage of the pandemic," CASTF president Guo Ming told Xinhua.

  "When people in Hubei and China were seriously affected by the epidemic, our members made great efforts to collect and deliver supplies to help them fight against the virus. Now we are deeply encouraged by them. The warmth and love between compatriots will not be blocked by mountains and rivers," said Xie Yuanyuan, general secretary of the CASTF.

  "The COVID-19 pandemic has brought difficulties to the whole world. No matter from which country and nation, people should get united and fight together against the virus," said Guo, adding that some members of the CASTF have been participating in the vaccine development. Enditem
