Jack Ma wrote on Twitter, “One world, one fight! We will donate emergency supplies – 2 million masks, 400K test kits, 104 ventilators – to 24 Latin American countries including Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Cuba, Ecuador, Dominican Republic and Peru. We will ship long-distance, and we will hurry! WE ARE ONE!”

On March 21, The Jack Ma Foundation and Alibaba Foundation issued a statement stating that they have promised to increase their philanthropy efforts during the global coronavirus crisis by donating medical supplies to 10 more countries in Asia.

The governments of Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Laos, Maldives, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka will receive 1.8 million masks, 210,000 COVID-19 test kits and 36,000 pieces of protective clothing, as well as ventilators and forehead thermometers.

“Go Asia! We will donate emergency supplies to 10 more countries across Asia,” said Alibaba’s billionaire former chairman Jack Ma through his Twitter account. “Delivering fast is not easy, but we’ll get it done!” Jack Ma wrote on Twitter.

Prior to Asia, the two foundations had announced donations of medical supplies to Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines.

Jack Ma — whose net worth is estimated to be around $38.9 billion — stepped down as chairman of China’s e-commerce giant in September to focus on philanthropy.

Besides Jack Ma, China has also provided eight tons of medical supplies to Greece yesterday, state-run Xinhua News Agency reported.
