[ Taiwan & Scouts spare no effort in fighting against Covid-19 : Mask packaging in Hsinchu City ]
From December 2019, Covid-19 has been whipping across the world and has caused many deaths and tragedies. We now know we are all in danger!
Taiwan spared no time establishing the now-famed Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) in December to deliver real-time information about the disease. Taiwan has successfully curdded the epidemic thanks to it's quick reaction and management.
Taiwan has united civilians, officials of young and old to be the most updated about Covid-19. Daily press conferences, special restrictions and tracking system are just some of the examples and efforts we have made to better tackle this problem.
Taiwan is experienced in facing diseases. That's why we, with memories of SARS of 2003, pay particular attention to sanitary instructions, wearing of masks and social distancing.
Masks, a rare type of goods for many countries, have been well controlled and efficiently distributed to the citizens at a low price. Thankfully, Taiwanese people are free from fear.
No one is an outsider in this crisis. We scouts have followed the instructions to cancel events to show our solidarity and sense of responsibility for the society. What else can we do?
We have decided to join the Public Health Center of Hsinchu City from April 2020 to help them pack masks. Hsinchu Sun Fun Scout Group launched volunteer recruitment on social media and in a few days, we have gathered many - some of them have to take leaves from work or studies to be a part of the good act.
Starting from May 2020, our scouts gather on Friday afternoon at the doorstep of the center. They have to be fully sanitized , take temperature and learn about the workflow before they can start working.
The participants , we call them, givers, are proud and delighted to serve whenever they can, especially in this time of crisis. Scout spirit is alive in our hearts. One good deed a day!
We believe that our actions will encourage the global scout community by showing them we scouts know not only camping and surviving in nature. Scouting has great values and spirit that push the society for the better and we live with high standards.
As many countries are having hard time on balancing economy and life-saving actions, Taiwan is helping as much as it can while keeping transparency, sincerity and democracy alive.
Taiwan can help, and it is helping, a lot. As scouts, we are also living up to sstandards, values and spirit of the Scout Movement.
May peace arrive at every doorstep along with scout spirit.
