More than 7 million face masks, protective suits, and COVID-19 testing kits were recently sent from the southern Chinese city of Guangzhou to Ethiopia’s capital, Addis Ababa, and arrived on March 22.

The supplies were sponsored by the Jack Ma Foundation and the Alibaba Foundation, which are charitable organizations registered in China’s Zhejiang province, and will be distributed via the Electronic World Trade Platform (eWTP) to all 54 African countries.

The Alibaba Group is one of the Chinese enterprises that have been helping Africa combat the COVID-19 pandemic. Thirty-two African countries had received medical supplies from China as of March 26, and the efforts have been hailed by their citizens and political leaders.
