FESCC at Markham Stouffville Hospital with masks from Taiwan

Busy at work! 08-10-2020

FESCC has been busily working and making sure to do our part to help fight the COVID-19 virus. Through our community, we've been able to raise nearly $100,000 for new medical equipment for all hospitals around Toronto. This includes surgical masks, face shields, scrubs, and other equipment essential for our front line workers. We're happy to have been able to help all those working at Mackay Memorial hospital, Markham Stouffville Hospital, and every other hospital in Toronto and the GTA. Thank you to our dedicated Taiwanese community and all those who have donated! We could not have done this without you.
