On the afternoon of June 25th, a ceremony was held to honor the donation of anti-epidemic materials from Guangxi University of China to Suan Dusit University of Thailand at the Bangkok Campus of Suan Dusit University. Executive Vice President Pitauk Chancharoen, Vice President Pacharee Suankaew, Vice President Waranee Vessoontorntep and Vice President Pornchanit Kaew-nate, together with the Chinese and Thai directors and teacher representatives of Confucius Institute of Suan Dusit University at Suphanburi (CISDUS) attended the ceremony.
Mr. Qiu Zongfeng, the Chinese director of the CISDUS, represented Guangxi University to deliver the anti-epidemic materials to Suan Dusit University and conveyed the deep concern and condolences from Guangxi University. He said that at the most urgent moment of the epidemic in China, Suan Dusit University made efforts to send anti-epidemic materials to Guangxi University as timely as possible, and recorded a video to pray for the teachers and students of Guangxi University and the Chinese people. Now, at the time when the epidemic in Thailand spread and the anti-epidemic materials were lacking, Guangxi University also expressed its deep concern of the teachers and students of Suan Dusit University and the people of Thailand, and actively provided assistance as much as possible. It is hopeful that the donated 20,000 face masks can help win the fight against the pandemic in Thailand, and provide the teachers and students of Suan Dusit University with a safe pass through this difficult period.
Vice President Pitauk Chancharoen expressed his gratitude to Guangxi University, saying that the medical supplies in Thailand are now tight, too. The face masks donated by Guangxi University are like sending charcoal in the snow, which is very helpful to the teachers and students of Suan Dusit University. Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, Thailand and China, Suan Dusit University and Guangxi University have cared about and helped each other to overcome the difficulties, which truly embodies the profound friendship within the “Chinese–Thai Family”. It is believed that the Thai-Chinese friendship, the cooperation between Suan Dusit University and Guangxi University is to be closer and far-reaching. As a bridge and platform for the cooperation between Suan Dusit University and Guangxi University, the CISDUS has played an important role in establishing a long-termed, stable and close cooperative relationship between the two universities. In addition, Pitauk Chancharoen also expressed his sincere gratitude for the efforts and dedication of the Confucius Institute to ensure the smooth progress of the mutual donations.
