Thai Union China Donates Tuna To Help People In Wuhan

Thai Union China has donated more than 52,000 cans of King Oscar tuna as humanitarian assistance in Wuhan, the epicentre of the coronavirus outbreak.

The shipment was delivered by a local logistics service and an online food delivery operator in two batches.

The first batch was given to people working on the Wuhan Leishenshan Hospital Project, one of two new hospitals being built for patients affected by the disease.

The second was distributed in more than 15 hospitals in the city including the Wuhan Union Hospital - the main hospital treating people with the COVID-19 virus.

Global director of corporate affairs and sustainability at Thai Union Group, Dr Darian McBain, commented, "As a global food company, we see part of our responsibility to provide humanitarian assistance through Tuna Aid to help support people living and working people in regions where we operate.

"COVID-19 is challenging not only in China but around the world and we all need to work together to overcome it."
