In the Spring of 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic brought upon chaos and uncertainty to the Chinese people, affecting all walks of life in China.      

As an overseas Chinese patriot, stationed in Singapore at the time, upon hearing the news about the challenges and lack of face masks through news media while the rest of the world was watching on with what was happening in Wuhan and the rest of China, Mr. Elijah Widjaja, felt that his only thoughts were with the Motherland, and he needed to do something to help solve these challenges. Immediately he contacted trusted sources he knew in Indonesia to procure face masks in just six short days, and he mobilized all the resources of his enterprise and through the joint efforts with Huangpu District Customs Office, Huangpu District Commerce Secretariat Office, it was not a small feat in securing and transporting 200,000 face masks to Shanghai as a donation to the Huangpu district government within such a short time. Being able to send the emergency supplies such as medical grade surgical masks to the front-line medical personnel was a matter of life and death, and Bund Center is proud to have been able to make such a significant contribution to those that needed it the most, sending warmth and strength to the front-line medical personnel.      

Despite facing an immense pressure of Covid-19 Pandemic while suffering financial losses at the Company level, Mr. Widjaja still communicated with Huangpu District Party Secretary and Government leaders even though he was overseas then, expressing his firm determined desire to fight against the Covid-19 deadly disease together with Huangpu District Government. He then decided to donate a further 20 million RMB towards pandemic relief efforts immediately, making an outstanding contribution to Huangpu District. The President of the charitable organization in Huangpu District was very grateful to receive the generous donation and also admitted that this was the largest donation amount they had ever received at that time.
