BTF donates 3500 medical masks to Brussels hospital
3 April 2020
On Tuesday March 31, 2020, Belgian Taekwondo Federation (BTF) President Abdelhak Boubouh donated 3,500 medical masks to the staff of the CHU Saint-Pierre (Brussels) on behalf of the Belgian Taekwondo Federation.
These masks were generously donated to the BTF by the World Taekwondo Federation (WT), following an agreement with the government of the municipality of Wuxi (China). These masks were originally intended for Belgian Taekwondo practitioners. The BTF wishes to thank the WT and the municipality of Wuxi for this donation.
All BTF members are currently all in confinement and continue to practice Taekwondo from home like all sportsmen and women in the country. The needs of our hospitals and the protection of the medical staff who are on the frontline every day is a national priority. The masks were given to the CHU Saint-Pierre which is a reference hospital in the fight against COVID-19.
