KOTA KINABALU: The Bor­neo Post, See Hua Daily News and Utu­san Bor­neo wel­come mes­sages and short video clips from the pub­lic to cheer for China’s on­go­ing ef­forts in bat­tling the novel coronaviru­s (COVID-19).

KTS Trad­ing Sdn Bhd Sabah area op­er­a­tions man­ager Wong Kee Mee said the ini­tia­tive would pro­vide a plat­form for the pub­lic to show their sup­port and sol­i­dar­ity with China dur­ing this chal­leng­ing time.

“This is an op­por­tu­nity for

Saba­hans to ex­press their sup­port to China through words, pho­to­graphs or videos.”

To par­tic­i­pate, write a mes­sage along with your pho­to­graph, or record a short video clip, and send to wuhan­ji­ayou.see­[email protected] gmail.com or share in the WeChat group cre­ated (scan the QR code to join). Sub­mis­sions start to­day.

The mes­sages, which can be in Man­darin, English or Malay, must not ex­ceed 100 words, whereas the video clip should be less than 60 se­conds.

The mes­sages re­ceived will be pub­lished in the Bor­neo Post, See Hua Daily News and Utu­san Bor­neo.

Mean­while, the video clips will be edited into a com­pi­la­tion, and there­after be up­loaded to the news­pa­pers’ Facebook pages.

The ini­tia­tive was launched by the Con­sul Gen­eral of the Peo­ple’s Repub­lic of China in Kota Kinabalu, Liang Caide, here.

Liang said he was touched by the out­pour­ing of sup­port from Sabah since the out­break of COVID-19 in China.

“I wish to ex­press my grat­i­tude to Sabah as well as See Hua for your sup­port.”

He also sug­gested pub­lish­ing ex­cerpts from the open let­ters writ­ten by Sabah Tshung Tsin Sec­ondary School stu­dents to cheer for China in fight­ing against the coronaviru­s out­break, many of which he found to be very touch­ing.

Liang said some 300 tour guides in Sabah, as well as the Chief Min­is­ter Datuk Seri Pan­glima Mohd Shafie Ap­dal and him­self, have recorded videos to cheer for China and Wuhan city.

“We will fully sup­port the ini­tia­tive launched by the See Hua Group,” he said.

Also present were See Hua Mar­ket­ing (Sabah) Sdn Bhd op­er­a­tions man­ager Toh Lu Hung, See Hua Daily News chief re­porter Yong Ted Phen and See Hua Daily News sub-ed­i­tor Teo Jinn Jiun.
