“With this, we would like to express our gratitude to all members of the public for the support and assistance in the fundraising drive which started on June 10.

“We will continue to support local healthcare system and care for needy families impacted by the pandemic.

“Thus, members may donate to Tzu Chi’s Charity Fund (tax deductible) to support these ongoing efforts,” it said.
