The pandemic of novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Japan and the Republic of Korea (ROK) has escalated since the beginning of this March and the two countries have faced heavy pressure in epidemic prevention and control work. The All-China Women's Federation (ACWF) donated 20,000 medical surgical masks to National Federation of Regional Women's Organizations and Women's Affairs Department of Soka Gakkai of Japan and the Ministry of Gender Equality and Family of the ROK, to support women in the two countries to fight against COVID-19. The masks have arrived in the two countries.

Lee Jung-ok, Minister of Gender Equality and Family of the ROK, sent a letter to express gratitude to the ACWF for the donation of masks during the hard times of fighting against the worldwide pandemic.

Lee noted that the donation shows China's support for the ROK's anti-epidemic fight, and also represents the two countries' thoughts and attention to the vulnerable in the face of this global disaster.

Lee said that the ACWF's donation and warm message of global solidarity for women is significant as this year marks the 25th anniversary of the Beijing Declaration and the Platform for Action adopted at the Fourth World Conference on Women, held in Beijing in 1995. She hoped that the Ministry and the ACWF will continue to work together for the shared goals of gender equality and women's empowerment in the future.

Iwata Shigeko, President of National Federation of Regional Women's Organizations of Japan, said that looking back on the long-term exchanges with the ACWF, they felt grateful for and encouraged by the sincere friendship between the two organizations that transcends national borders and stands firmly in the face of difficulties.

The Women's Affairs Department of Soka Gakkai sent a letter saying it is believed that China's experience in the anti-epidemic fight will inspire the whole world. The letter expressed gratitude to the ACWF for its sincere help, and hoped Chinese and Japanese people will pull through these difficult times.
