20,000 masks Donated from the China Alumni Association

The Kanazawa University China Alumni Association has donated 20,000 masks to KU due to concerns about the shortage of masks in Japan, and wanting to be helpful in our educational activities.

The Kanazawa University China Alumni Association was founded in November, 2014 with Professor Anlin Wang of Tongji University, China as the chairperson. Since then, the Kanazawa University China Alumni Association has expanded to 6 branches, and currently has 275 members.

Alumni who were worried that the lack of masks would hinder our students from taking lectures at the university, procured 20,000 masks locally and sent them to our university.

Currently, our classes are limited to online classes. Thus, when face-to-face classes become possible, these masks will be used for preventing infectious diseases, especially for students taking classes on experiments and fieldwork.
