Taiwan’s NCF donates medical supplies to fight COVID-19 in Mongolia

Protecting frontline healthcare workers to ensure the best prevention measures in Mongolia.

The Noordhoff Craniofacial Foundation (NCF), a nongovernmental organization based in Taiwan, donated personal protective equipment (PPE)—including medical gloves, protective clothing, and safety face shields—to the National Center for Maternal and Child Health of Mongolia (NCMCHM) on May 28. The hospital has been overloaded with children with severe COVID-19 symptoms and faces a shortage of medical supplies due to the latest outbreak in Mongolia, which started in April. NCF's donation is worth US$15,000. Ensuring an adequate supply of PPE is vital to preventing infection of healthcare workers due to a large influx of COVID-19 patients.

The donation ceremony at the Taipei Trade and Economic Representative Office in Ulaanbaatar was attended by NCMCHM Managing Director Ms. Dulamragchaa, General Coordinator Ms. Solongo, Surgical Department Chair Dr. Ayanga, and Dr. Erdenetsogt, who represented hospital doctors. Erdenetsogt said the hospital appreciated the second donation from NCF and added that the donated PPE would improve the safety of medical healthcare workers. During the pandemic, Erdenetsogt said he wished everyone in Taiwan and Mongolia to stay safe and return to normal life.

NCF CEO Chen Yi-ling (陳依伶) and Consultant Rebecca Wang (王金英 joined the ceremony by videoconference. Chen said the NCF has cooperated closely with international NGOs and medical partners to combat COVID-19 since the pandemic began. Because Taiwan is facing a local outbreak that may have originated overseas, the country should cooperate with its neighbors to prevent further infections. Chen said the donation to NCMCHM shows NCF’s belief that Taiwan can help.

Taiwan's Representative to Mongolia Lo Chin-ru (羅靜如) said Taiwan had not been invited to participate in the 74th World Health Assembly in May. Lo said the outbreak in Taiwan showed the importance and necessity for Taiwan to join the World Health Organization (WHO) and related international medical institutions.  Lo said she hoped the world would staunchly support Taiwan's inclusion in WHO.
