    Story

    Nottingham Chinese standing with the NHS to fight Covid-19

    亲爱的诺丁汉华人华侨和校友:

    Just over a month ago, the staff and friends of University of Nottingham have raised over £4,200 to support the City of Ningbo to fight the novel coronavirus, a great show of kindness and solidarity of Nottingham to its twinned city in China.

    And now with the Covid-19 crisis deepens in the UK and our National Health Service under unprecedented pressure to provide treatment and care for the nation, the Chinese community in Nottingham is pulling our strengths together to buy much needed medical supplies from China to reach our NHS in Nottingham as soon as possible.

    Jointly launched by the Chinese colleagues at Asia Business Centre of the University of Nottingham (Min Rose, Nottingham City Council (Jason Yu) and Midlands Engine (Lai Xi), the fundraising will demonstrate that we are one truly global and civic community that transcends ethnicity, nationality and culture.

    随着英国进入疫情的攻坚阶段,诺丁汉大学亚洲商务中心何敏、诺丁汉市政厅于集、英国中部引擎赖茜,联合发起“诺丁汉华人援助NHS爱心行动”。

    英国医院医护出现了物资紧张的情况:卫生部长在采访中提到英国医院需要3万台呼吸机,而医护人员正面临着口罩、防护面具、防护服、护目镜、医用手套不足的现象。昨日主流媒体还报道了部分医院不得不二次使用口罩——这和武汉初期的物资稀缺以及医护人员正在做出的牺牲何其相似!只有保护好了医护人员,才能更好地救治病人。我们心急如焚。

    我们知道,诺丁汉华人华侨和留学生在前不久还一直在积极踊跃地为武汉和祖国捐资出力。我们也体会到,在英国疫情恶化之前,媒体报道中一些留学生因为戴口罩而受到不公平甚至歧视和偏见性待遇的个别情况也深深地伤害了许多华人、留学生的心。正因为如此,我们华人、留学生更应该担任起增进中英人民的相互了解、体现华人华侨留学生的凝聚力、树立华人华侨不但爱国也积极融入自己生活的海外本地社区——这是一个神圣而艰巨的使命。毕竟,中英友好、两国人民互相理解,这难道不是我们华人华侨留学生最大的共同心愿吗?

    在祖国疫情最严重的时候,诺丁汉大学亚洲商务中心于1月31日正式发起“Standing with Ningbo”的捐资活动,为宁波一医院筹集了约£4380英镑购买医护物资。这场捐赠活动得到了诺丁汉员工(不分国籍)的积极响应,许多英国同事在捐赠平台上留下了真诚和充满爱心的赠言。还有一位校友告诉我们,2008年汶川地震的时候她正好在诺丁汉做交换学生,在为四川捐款赈灾的时候,当地的诺丁汉民众给予了很大支持。这些都充分说明了英国人民、特别是诺丁汉人民对宁波和中国的友好和支持。这充分说明,无知和狭隘只是极少数现象,而我们的捐赠活动将是对其最有力的回击。

    诺丁汉大学亚洲商务中心已经和诺丁汉大学医院信托基金呼吸学名誉顾问,呼吸系统疾病服务主任多米尼克.肖(Dominick Shaw)教授取得了联系。他是诺丁汉迄今为止最大的哮喘研究联盟的负责人,也是诺丁汉国家信托困难哮喘服务的负责人。肖教授非常感动,他说“越是在危难的时候,这种友好的行为越能发挥作用“。由于肖教授正在和时间赛跑,主导诺丁汉呼吸科对新冠病毒的服务,他特委托他的朋友和同事、英国肺基金会医学与健康科学学院呼吸流行病学教授理查德·哈伯德(Richard Hubbard)教授为其代表,以接受口罩和其他相关捐赠。 哈伯德教授正好也是”诺丁汉健康中国计划“的英国主任,该计划是由亚洲商务中心支持的诺丁汉大学与中国医疗保健行业进行研究和知识交流的战略平台。

    Dominick Shaw, Professor of Respiratory Medicine at the University of Nottingham and Honorary Consultant, Head of Service, Respiratory Medicine, Nottingham University Hospital Trust, greatly appreciates the support offered by the alumni and friends of University of Nottingham, as well as the wider Chinese community in Nottingham.

    Currently Professor Shaw is busy preparing Nottingham’s respiratory services response to Covid-19. Therefore Professor Shaw has entrusted his friend and colleague, Prof Richard Hubbard, Professor of Respiratory Epidemiology, Faculty of Medicine & Health Sciences, to act on his behalf to receive the masks and other related donations. Professor Hubbard is the UK Director of the Nottingham Healthcare China, the University’s strategic engagement platform for research and knowledge exchange with China’s healthcare sector supported by the Asia Business Centre.

    患难相交,大爱无疆。这场正在席卷全球的挑战也是彰显同胞们爱国爱乡、联结当地社区、传递国际友谊的机会,也是在英国民众面前展示中华民族胸襟和大爱的时刻。

    我们不应该成为埋怨的传递者,而应该是消除误解的沟通者。

    我们不应该让自己的爱心受到国界、种族或者文化的割离。

    在人类命运共同体的国际环境中,我们是中国人,也是世界公民。

    请加入我们,支援当地的NHS,为促进中英友好、为帮助人类早日战胜共同的病毒出一份力量。
