Ruhof Gives Full Support to South Lake Through a Generous Donation of PURELL Hand Sanitizers
On July 6, an extraordinary storm struck Wuhan. Tens of thousands of people were forced to evacuate. From 8 p.m. on June 30th to 10 a.m. on July 6th, the amount of precipitation in Wuhan had accumulated to 560.5 mm as a result of heavy rainfall. This amount exceeded the record for weekly accumulated precipitation since Wuhan started keeping meteorological records. The South Lake and Guanggu Finance Harbor regions suffered the most severe flooding.
Without any hesitation, Hangzhou Ruhof Merchandise Import & Export Ltd. donated 5000 bottles of PURELL Advanced Instant Hand Sanitizer (valued at 150,000 RMB, PURELL is the leading brand of hand sanitizer in the U.S.), for the sake of helping people endure the difficulties during flood control and disaster relief. Sun Science, Ruhof’s re-distributor in Wuhan, was responsible for the timely distribution of the hand sanitizers with the aim of preventing disease transmission and safeguarding the health of people in disaster areas.
On July 11, Ruhof volunteers arrived at Luoshi Road Primary School, relocation site for people in Hongshan District, Wuhan. Most of people there were residents in South Lake who were trapped by the flooding. They continued to wade in the dirty water several times a day to go back home even though they were fearful of disease and infection. With that in mind, Ruhof volunteers handed out hand sanitizers to those residents and taught them how to use the products. The Ruhof volunteers also passed on knowledge of infection control to the residents. After receiving the products and services, residents of South Lake were very grateful to Ruhof volunteers.
To this day, a lot of residents still suffer from the flooding. The tens of thousands of people still affected cannot return to normal scheduled lives or return to work. However, Wuhan people are and will always be supported by Ruhof folks, who are praying for them: Wuhan, Hang in there!
Tomorrow is another day. Love gives us the reason to fight and survive. Remember, every cloud has a silver lining.
