Team quickly formed

On Wednesday, China ended its 76-day lockdown of Wuhan, Hubei province, where cases were first reported in December.

Since then, life has been harder for many Chinese-Americans, who have had to deal with fear, discrimination and business closures. However, in the face of such adversity, they have made it their mission to secure supplies for hospitals.

Wang, from Silicon Valley, studied at Wuhan University and University of California-Los Angeles. He has worked in Silicon Valley for years and sees it his duty to help both China and the US whenever needed.

As vice-president of the Wuhan Alumni Association of Northern California, Wang swiftly formed a team of Chinese-Americans in late January. He worked closely with NGOs, including Direct Relief and MAP International, delivering more than 10 tons of supplies mainly to Hubei, of which Wuhan is the provincial capital.

When the virus began spreading on the West Coast of the US, Wang again led the group of Chinese-Americans, raising as much as they could within weeks, and worked with the NGOs to help hospitals in California buy medical supplies.
