Lee noted that the donation shows China's support for the ROK's anti-epidemic fight, and also represents the two countries' care and concern for disadvantaged groups affected by the pandemic.

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 Platform for Action adopted at the Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing.
