Local Chinese Community Donates Supplies to TTPS to Contain COVID-19

On April 17, the Chinese Community in Trinidad and Tobago donated supplies to the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) to contain COVID-19 in a hand-over ceremony that took place at the Chinese Embassy. His Excellency Ambassador Song Yumin, Commissioner of Police Gary Griffith, Mr. Yung Gen Siu, President of the China Society, and Mr. Yanping Chen, President of China Trinidad and Tobago Chamber of Commerce were present at the ceremony.

Speaking at the ceremony, Ambassador Song noted that China-Trinidad and Tobago relations have been developing well, bringing tangible benefits to the two countries and two peoples. Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the two countries had worked together and helped each other, which further deepened the existing friendship. The Chinese Embassy in Trinidad and Tobago appreciated the efforts of TTPS to maintain social order and public security during the pandemic and to protect the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese citizens in Trinidad and Tobago. By donating supplies, the Chinese Community would like to express its firm support to the TTPS to fight against the pandemic and safeguard social security. The Chinese Embassy believed the TTPS would, as always, protect the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese citizens in Trinidad and Tobago and provide them with a strong safety guarantee. The Embassy was ready to continue maintaining close communication with the TTPS and advancing China-Trinidad and Tobago relations.

Mr. Yung Gen Siu and Mr. Yanping Chen, on behalf of the Chinese associations including the China Society and China Trinidad and Tobago Chamber of Commerce, thanked the TTPS for safeguarding Chinese citizens who worked and lived in Trinidad and Tobago. The Chinese Community have recently donated protective supplies including hand sanitisers to all nine regional police stations across the country. It is hoped that the police would better personal protection and remain healthy and safe while performing duties. The Chinese Community in Trinidad and Tobago were willing to work closely with the TTPS to overcome the pandemic at an early time.

Commissioner of Police Griffith, on behalf of the TTPS, expressed sincere thanks to the Chinese Embassy and Chinese Community in Trinidad and Tobago. He noted that the supplies were a testimony to the profound friendship between China and Trinidad and Tobago, which would help the TTPS to carry out its duty more safely and efficiently. Since the outbreak of the pandemic, the TTPS had done a good job in terms of prevention, and there was a great demand for hand sanitisers. These donations came just in time. The TTPS would further strengthen self-protection to ensure effectiveness, so as to guarantee the safety of all people including Chinese citizens in Trinidad and Tobago.

Under the witness of Ambassador Song, Mr. Yung Gen Siu handed over around 500 bottles of hand sanitisers to Commissioner of Police Griffith.
