HKBU offers Immunity Enhancement Remedy to frontline medical staff and other people in need
24 Mar 2020
HKBU today (24 March) offers over 5,000 sets of “HKBU Chinese Medicine Immunity Enhancement Remedy” for free to suitable frontline healthcare workers of the Hospital Authority (HA) as a token of appreciation for their effort in fighting the coronavirus outbreak. Each recipient can obtain a six-day course of the Remedy free of charge.
The Chinese Medicine Immunity Enhancement Remedy is prescribed by the School of Chinese Medicine (SCM) and produced with herbal medicine ingredients free of any contaminants such as pesticides and heavy metals.
This gift to frontline healthcare workers is made possible by the generous donation from the Philip K.H Wong Foundation and also with the support of the Tan Siu Lin Foundation.
Free distribution of the HKBU Chinese Medicine Immunity Enhancement Remedy to HA frontline healthcare workers is yet another healthcare charitable initiative carried out by the University. Since February, it had collaborated with the Lions & Hong Kong Baptist University Chinese Medicine Charity Foundation, The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, Fong’s Family Foundation and Fong Shu Fook Tong Foundation to distribute the herbal remedy to elders aged 65 or above, patients with chronic illnesses, residents of elderly care homes, families receiving Comprehensive Social Security Assistance (CSSA) and other people in need of help. Around 20,000 beneficiaries are getting the Remedy.
Upon knowing that HKBU is distributing the herbal remedy for free to the needy, more donors come forward with Chinese medicines or donations to support this meaningful initiative. They include Jiangyin Tianjiang Pharmaceutical Industry Co Ltd, Mr Chung Po Yang, Mr Timothy Lam, Jr, Mrs Lee Siu Lun, Dr Ronald Lu and a senior Civil Engineering alumnus.
