San Jose, CA – Friday, February 21, 2020 – Wuhan United today announced it has partnered with MAP International and Grandstream Networks to facilitate the  delivery of 1.6M donated medical masks to dozens of Chinese hospitals that are fighting the coronavirus.

Wuhan United is a San Jose based non-profit organization focused on the distribution of disaster relief materials & equipment to the Chinese hospitals most-impacted by the coronavirus. With the help of a large and efficient network of devoted volunteers in China, corporate donors, countless individual donors, and major humanitarian aid organizations, Wuhan United has delivered over 1M+ pieces of personal protective gear to China’s most-affected hospitals since January 2020.

“We are deeply grateful for the support that we received from MAP International and Grandstream Networks,” said Tom Gon, Wuhan United’s Founder and Chairman. “We look forward to fostering our partnership with them and delivering more urgently needed medical supplies to the hospitals in need.”

A Georgia-based nonprofit, global health organization, MAP International provides medicines and health supplies to those in need around the world so they might experience life to the fullest. In January 2020, MAP airlifted 120 pallets of surgical masks and protective gear to Chinese hospitals hard-hit by the coronavirus.

MAP International is now partnering with Wuhan United and Grandstream Networks to arrange an urgent air shipment of an additional 1.6M pieces of personal protective gear to China.

“MAP International is grateful to our corporate partners for helping us respond to the coronavirus outbreak,” said Steve Stirling, MAP President and CEO. “Helping people in their time of need is what MAP International has been doing for over 65 years and we are honored to be helping in China.”

Grandstream Networks is a Boston-based manufacturer of unified IP voice & video communications products. The company has made a significant cash donation to MAP International to support its coronavirus relief efforts and has been working closely with Wuhan United to facilitate the distribution of relief materials to numerous hospitals in China. This is Grandstream’s second donation. Its first donation was through Direct Relief and Wuhan United earlier this month.

“We are honored to work with Wuhan United and MAP International to support the front line Chinese hospitals,” said David Li, CEO of Grandstream Networks. “Grandstream is a socially responsible corporation and we are committed to contributing to global relief efforts to jointly fight the severe virus outbreak in China.”
