TRO distributes face masks to Taiwanese students in the UK

From 25 to 31 March, the TRO assisted overseas Taiwanese students in the UK who remained in their university accommodation to obtain face masks during the coronavirus lockdown. After carrying out extensive consultations with students, the TRO Education Division helped establish a face-mask distribution scheme to address students’ concerns over the lack of masks during the pandemic. The Education Division ordered a large shipment of masks to post to students unable to acquire their own supplies due to travel restrictions and shortages in local shops. By the end of March, the TRO assisted 646 Taiwanese students to acquire face masks which were posted to their universities, including those without a Taiwanese Students’ Association.
