On July 15, Swiss student Anthony received the donation bill and honorary certificate from Zhao Kai, vice president of the Jiangsu Red Cross Society.

Anthony is a doctoral student in the clinical medicine field of Integrative Chinese and Western Medicine at the Nanjing University of Chinese Medicine. He has been in Nanjing for 7 years. "Since the outbreak, I have been in China, and my family and friends know that I am safe. Although I have not been able to directly participate in the fight against the epidemic, I want to do something for the people on this land."

In early February, the Jiangsu Provincial Hospital of Chinese Medicine, the affiliated hospital of Nanjing University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, was in short supply of medical protective materials. Anthony immediately contacted his relatives and friends in Switzerland. Professor Luo Dundi, director of the Family Medicine Department of the University of Fribourg School of Medicine in Switzerland, learned of this situation. Urgently raised 10,000 medical masks.

"Please be sure to emphasize that I did not donate 10,000 masks. I am just helping to transfer them." Anthony told reporters seriously.

To ensure that this batch of masks is delivered to the medical staff in time, Anthony took a lot of effort. With the joint efforts of many units and many caring people, this relay from Zurich, Switzerland, via France, Shanghai, China, and then to Nanjing came to a successful conclusion.

Anthony was most impressed when he rushed to the Jiangsu Provincial Hospital of Chinese Medicine with the supplies. "I see all kinds of vehicles coming into the hospital from time to time, and people are bringing in medical supplies such as masks, protective clothing, disinfectants, etc., and everyone is helping." Anthony said, "Jiangsu Provincial Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine is my first time. In the place of internship, the first time I met the patient and the first time I participated in the operation was there, so I was very moved when I saw this scene."

"Many of China shown by foreign media is not comprehensive and objective, but what I see is the real appearance." Anthony has witnessed China's difficult anti-epidemic journey and is willing to tell his relatives and friends about his experience. "China has quickly built the Huoshenshan Hospital and Leishenshan Hospital, and medical staff from all over the country have joined the front line of fighting the epidemic. This is China's speed and China's strength. I believe that few countries in the world can complete such a task."

14 batches of 2,820 people, the total number of medical staff assisted by Jiangsu in Hubei ranks among the best in the country. Among them, nearly a quarter are from various affiliated hospitals, clinical medical schools, and teaching hospitals of Nanjing University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. In this regard, Anthony is sincerely proud and proud.

"I have a lot of teachers and friends who went to Wuhan. Through the circle of friends, I saw that teachers lead patients to practice Tai Chi and Wu Qin Xi, which is really great." Anthony said, "Actually, the combination of traditional medicine and modern medicine in foreign countries is also the same. The general trend, whether traditional Chinese medicine or Western medicine, acupuncture or hydration, the goal is to cure the patient and use whichever is effective."

Zhang Jianhua, deputy dean of the School of International Education of the Nanjing University of Chinese Medicine, said that starting next year, the University of Fribourg will implement a joint training program, and graduate students majoring in family doctors from the University of Fribourg will have the opportunity to take courses related to Chinese medicine at the Nanjing University of Chinese Medicine course.

Half a year passed in a flash, and Anthony felt that the half-year passed was very meaningful. "The doctor's mission is to save people. Although I failed to go to the first-line hospital to support, staying in China to help, also realized my own value."
