ICS Good Works During the COVID-19 Epidemic Period

ICS Good Works During COVID-19 Epidemic Period
新型冠状病毒防疫期间之 ICS 美好善工


On January 24, 2020, due to the outbreak of the new corona-virus (COVID-19), cities in Hubei Province were locked down one after another. Other cities in China also started isolation management in different stages. The demand for personal protective equipment increased instantly. Since the outbreak of the epidemic, ICS has taken the initiative of donating RMB100,000 epidemic support fund through the “Shanghai Christian Council” for the prevention and treatment of pneumonia caused by new corona-virus infection.

2020年1月24日,因新型冠状病毒(COVID-19) 疫情造成湖北省各城市接连封城,中国其他城市也陆续开始阶段性封闭式管理,对于防疫用品的需求瞬间加增。甫自疫情传出,ICS第一时间便率先透过“上海市基督教两会”捐赠人民币100,000 抗疫基金作为抗击新型冠状病毒感染肺炎疫情防治工作所用。

After hearing of the needs of local churches and hospitals in the epidemic areas, our church members went around to source for various types of personal protective equipment. We provided urgently-needed products to various local hospitals and Churches. These include N95 masks, surgical masks, disinfectants, Level 3 isolation protective suits etc. Not only were the urgently needed protective goggles provided to First People’s Hospital in Xiaogan City, but a total of 3,000 pieces of N95 masks, which, in recent times were extremely short in supply, were immediately provided to Jinshan Branch of Fudan University in Shanghai, Zhongshan Hospital and Wuchang Funeral Parlor. Other medical supplies such as disinfectant sprays and protective goggles have also arrived in Hubei, for distribution to beneficiaries including the government recognized churches in Xiantao City and the First People’s Hospital of Xiaogan City.

在收到疫区地方教会和各级医疗院所的需求之后,会友们便主动集结极力奔走协寻各类型防疫物资,也陆续为各地医疗机构和教会肢体提供急需物资,包括N95口罩和医用防护口罩、消毒用品、3级隔离衣…等上万件物资。不仅是孝感市第一人民医院急需的护目镜,在近期内更取得极度稀缺的N95口罩立即提供给上海市复旦大学金山分院、中山医院和武昌殡仪馆共计3000枚。其他医疗物资如消毒喷雾和护目镜也都陆续抵达湖北地区。包括仙桃地区三自教会的和孝感市第一人民医院都一一受惠。

Recently, we found out that the medical workers of Vulcan Mountain Hospital and Wuhan Central Hospital urgently needed more personal protective suits. With the help of the volunteer team’s coordination under emergency, they managed to source for supplies within half a day and immediately arranged for delivery to Wuhan. This shows that with cooperation of church members, there would definitely be no lack of God’s provision.

近日,在得知火神山医院和武汉中心医院的医护人员急需防护服,在义工团队的紧急协调调度下,半日内取得物资并火速安排运送到武汉。在显示出在会友们的通力合作,耶和华以勒的神预备和供应绝对没有缺乏。

We also donated protective suits to medical workers in Shanghai Sino United Health Clinic, as well as Level 3 protective suits to funeral workers of Wuchang Funeral Parlor. These will help keep the frontline epidemic workers protected.

不仅如此,上海浦东曜影医疗人员以及武昌殡仪馆的殡葬业者们也都陆续收到3级防护服,不仅是医护人员也让相关参与防疫工作人员同时享有安全屏障。

In addition, with help from our loving neighbors, we also provided surgical masks to local communities in Shanghai. Including XiShi Elderly Service Center; Shanghai Huge Grace Disabled Children Welfare Center and more, with a total value of over RMB 200,000.

Our Church continues to maintain close contact with medical hospitals, so that we can be informed of the most current status and needs of each medical center. We will continue to provide relevant assistance in a timely and effective manner. In the meantime, we ask our members to continue praying together with us to bring this epidemic under control, and to seek God’s healing and restoration of this land.

此外,秉持着爱邻舍的心,也提供一般型医疗口罩给上海地区其地方单位。如上海喜事助老中心;上海广慈儿童福利院…等机构,捐赠总价值超过人民币200,000。

教会仍继续与各医疗院所保持密切联系,明了各阶段各单位所需的物资,有效地给予适度的协助。在此也恳求会友们持续地为防疫工作代祷,求神的医治和恢复临到这地。

As the Shanghai Municipal Government’s epidemic prevention measures are well maintained, many organizations have resumed work in recent weeks. To help cater to the needs of church members and others returning to work, we are also providing free masks for Adults and Children.

In accordance with the epidemic prevention policy, during this period where Sunday services and cell group meetings are temporarily suspended, the Church is encouraging cell groups to stay connected via online communication platforms. We are also to show care and look out for one another with love and encouragement. ICS has taken further steps to launch online Sunday service videos. These videos are not only recorded timely and made available online, they also include praise and worship sessions as well as other messages. We hope to continue feeding our church members with timely messages from the Word of God. We believe that in such uncertain times, members will all the more be strengthened by the Word of God and continue to pray fervently in the Spirit, have faith in Jesus, share the good news, and be the Salt and Light in the world.

适逢上海市政府防疫得宜,上海地区也在近期内陆续开工,教会也提供会友们成人和儿童口罩免费索取。

配合防疫政策,暂停主日聚会和小组聚会的期间,教会也鼓励小组仍能善用通讯软体连结,彼此相顾激发爱心,勉励行善。也因此,不仅仅是牧师们配合讲道的录影即时在网站上更新,更顺势推出线上主日聚会,包括敬拜讚美和信息,企盼提供会友们即时话语的喂养。相信在如此不确定的时刻,会友们更能在神的话语刚强,在圣灵裡祷告,靠著耶稣得胜,分享好消息,作盐作光。
