At the donation site, the relevant person in charge of Joy Wing Mau Group said that front-line medical staff were very cautious about saving resources and would not drink too much water avoiding going to the toilet and only eating instant noodles. “Fruits can both provide moisture and provide nutrition. Authorities have also proposed that during the epidemic, everyone should eat more fresh vegetables and fruits every day. So Joy Wing Mau carefully selected the best quality fruits together with its partners and designed a special box for them, to give away to the medical staff. Inside are: kiwi fruits from Zespri, Nongfu Spring 17,5° oranges, Envy apples and Rockit apples from New Zealand."
