Dharma Drum Mountain Donates Six Million Vaccine Needles

Thanks to the kindness and support from all over the country and beyond, Dharma Drum Mountain Buddhist Foundation has successfully acquired six million counts of 1ml vaccine needles, and will donate them to various vaccination sites via the Ministry of Health and Welfare. Today, on August 16th at noon, representatives from CDC Headquarters, together with DDM representatives, are at the logistic center located in Taoyuan, to oversee the first delivery of one million vaccine needles. In addition to the first delivery of one million vaccine needles, the remaining five million needles will be delivered shortly thereafter. All vaccine needles will be donated to the Ministry of Health and Welfare for distribution, in the hopes of increasing the vaccination rate and fulfilling the public’s wishes to be vaccinated.

According to Dharma Drum Mountain, the emergence of the coronavirus serves to remind us  that all of humankind is a closely connected community. It is hoped that every vial of vaccine can have the most efficacy and safeguard the health of the public.
