Donation of Medical-grade Masks to Support the Community

Given the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic in Ontario, Fo Guang Shan Temple of Toronto and BLIA Toronto Chapter reach out to contact and coordinate, to seek to assist Ontario hospitals’ response to COVID-19.


Masks (personal protective devices) are essential during this period, especially medical-grade masks for those working on the front lines of health care. On March 31 and April 8, our Temple and BLIA Toronto Chapter donated a total of 5,800 medical-grade masks to “Mobilizing Masks for Health Care Provider” and “Frontline medical workers”. On April 7, 1,800 masks were donated to Yee Hong Centre For Geriatric Care.
