This is the crisis of our lifetime. We mourn with you the lives lost and livelihoods destroyed. At this difficult time of isolation, please know that you are not alone.
Taiwan has been devastated by pandemics before. We lost friends, loved ones, and brave medical professionals to the 2003 SARS epidemic.
As we have been excluded from international health organizations and left to fend for ourselves, we too have felt isolated.
Taiwan knows what the world is going through, so we have done everything possible to share vital knowledge with the world and give out lifesaving resources to those in need.
In the past 3 months, we have worked with the US and the EU on advanced rapid testing and vaccines for COVID-19, and we have given out 16 million face masks to support medical workers around the world, with many more on the way.
We might not have a lot to give, but what we have, we’ll share with you. At a time of isolation, we choose solidarity.

WHO CAN HELP? TAIWAN.
You are not alone. Taiwan is with you. We want you to know that in isolation there is solidarity.
We know what you are going through. We know how hard it is. We mourn with you the connections lost. Both lives and livelihoods.
Taiwan, having been devastated by the SARS epidemic in 2003, knows.
Taiwan, having been isolated by the WHO, knows.
But no one can exclude us from contributing to international efforts by sharing how we contained the outbreak, kept our schools and businesses open, and ensured masks for all.
In the past 3 months, we have provided 16 million face masks to support medical workers around the world and have worked together with the US and the EU on the most advanced rapid tests and vaccines for COVID-19.
Who can isolate Taiwan? No one.
Because we are here to help.
