China: Buying more than 30,000 masks from his home – Uzbekistan and giving them to pedestrians in Guangzhou, Guo Moruo’s actions received many praises.
On February 12, at the gate of the Guangdong University of Foreign Studies (Guangzhou City, China), a foreign male student wrapped big bag and began giving them to pedestrians.
It was an international student from Uzbekistan, whose Chinese name was Guo Moruo, a senior at the university. He has just bought 15,000 face masks from his home town, brought them to school for his classmates, donated to the school and local hospitals to fight Covid-19.
In the past half month, Guo has made two flights, carrying about 30,000 face masks for everyone.
“China is like my second home. Many people who contact me offer to buy face masks if I don’t give it away for free and telling me I can make money. But in this difficult time, I just want to help people, money is not my goal,” he said on Kankanews.
Guo Moruo said that in fact, his family members did not fully support it because they worried about his health and safety.
Not only did Guo buy his own money, his wife, friends, and brothers also contributed money to buy a face mask for him to give to support.
Guo Moruo also said he should have been able to wear more masks but due to limited financial capacity and difficult transportation. To fly from his hometown to Guangzhou, he transited in Moscow (Russia) and had to wait through many rigorous rounds of inspection.
Although he was difficult in carrying the big bag, Guo expressed he was happy to be able to give them to friends and people at his “second home” in the middle of the epidemic season.
