On 25 March 2020, the Apostolic Nunciature and its friends donated 62 boxes of protective gear and some medical instruments to the campaign dubbed "Italy-Taiwan: healthy together" promoted by the Italian Economic, Trade and Cultural Promotion Office in Taiwan (IETCPO) and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA).
The campaign was started to encourage bilateral exchanges of know-how and experiences in the health sector between Italian and Taiwanese doctors, in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic that has hit Italy heavily. It also seeks donations of medical equipment and instruments which are very necessary but which are not easily available in Europe due to their high demand at the present moment. The MOFA will transport the donations to Italy as soon as a sufficient amount is accumulated.
Whoever would want to contribute to the campaign may contact the IETCPO (2345-0320), the MOFA (0905-479-702) or the Apostolic Nunciature (2700-6847).
