A government statement says last week, the organisation handed over the first set of assistance which included 20,000 COVID-19 test kits valued at $187,500 to the Fijian Government through the Office of the Consulate-General of Fiji in Shanghai.
While receiving the donation, Bainimarama thanked the organisations on behalf of the government and the people of Fiji, adding such funding assistance will certainly assist the country towards containing the COVID-19 pandemic.
The organisation's representative Gang Jin said they wanted to contribute to the country’s fight against COVID-19 because Fiji is their second home.
He says they also aim to invest in the country and contribute to its economic growth.
