JD Super Donates Personal Care Products to Female Medical Staff in Wuhan
by Rachel Liu
On February 14th, JD Super, JD’s online supermarket, donated 2,000 sets of feminine care products and nearly 630,000 adult diapers to hospitals through JD Logistics, including the Wuhan Wuchang Hospital, Wuhan Ninth Hospital and Wuhan Hankou Hospital.
Feminine care products are heavily needed now at the frontline. It has been reported that there are over 100,000 female workers as frontline staff in Hubei province. Responding to this need, JD Super immediately checked the inventory of feminine care products in Wuhan warehouses and chose to donate Whisper Koala overnight pads and Always Infinity pads to meet this need.
“We immediately reached out to brand partners and took inventory of the needs of the hospitals and frontline workers to offer timely help,” said Xiaofeng Qian, Sales Manager of Self Care Products, JD FMCG (Fast Moving Consumer Goods).
Besides feminine care products, JD Super also worked with brands such as Elderjoy and yiBaShou to donate adult diapers to frontline workers to help them with their personal care problems as they wear protective medical suits.
A doctor at one of the hospitals in Wuhan said: “The protective suits can only be worn once, and we don’t have enough of them. To save resources we have to try not to use the restroom once we put on the suits. The adult diapers can really help us during this hard time.”
