美国Lee Academy高级中学响应“人类命运共同体”理念

来源:美国Lee Academy高级中学(上海分校) 时间:2020-05-06 14:36:39

  自1月以来,在中国的美国Lee Academy高级中学(上海分校)大家庭获得了应对COVID-19疫情挑战的第一手经验。父母和学生都经历了“宅家不外出”的时期以及各种如何有效预防病毒的知识。我们知道在前期物资的及其缺乏,以及物资缺乏给医务人员带来的困难,这将极大的增加医务人员感染的概率。

  Since January, the ALAIS family – students, parents, and teacher – have gained first-hand experience of the challenges caused by the COVID-19 outbreak. Parents and students have experienced the difficulties of quarantine, isolation, and virus prevention. They have witnessed the difficulties and hardships of doctors and nurses throughout China treating COVID-19 patients with little protective gear, many of whom later became infected and even died from the virus.

  我校校长Josh Holt先生解释说:“除了提供强大的大学预科课程外,ALAIS的主要目标是教育我们的学生成为一名全球公民,富有责任心,帮助世界各地的社区中需要帮助的人群。”

  “ALAIS understands one its main purposes beyond providing a strong college prep curriculum is to educate our students to be global citizens with a sense of a responsibility help all in need in communities around the world,” Josh Holt, Head of School, explained.

  随着COVID-19在世界范围内的传播,ALAIS大家庭雪中送炭,把爱心送到了世界各地。在募捐启动后的48个小时,我校家委会收到了来自我校管理层、教职工以及家长的捐款,总计达4万元人民币。

  As COVID-19 spread throughout the world, the ALAIS family extended its generosity, empathy, and resources to support the doctors and nurses around the world by any means necessary. Within 48 hours of starting the fundraiser among parents and teachers, the PTO collected almost 40,000RMB, donated by students, teachers, and school leaders.

  我们团结在一起,共同对抗疫情,我们的家长通过各种途径采购合格的3M口罩。我校学生Denise(11年级)的妈妈表示:“我们之所以选择物资支持美国医疗团队,是因为我们的孩子正在美国高中读书,感觉在情感上于美国更紧密些。”同在一个世界抵抗疫情,更受到来自儒家传统的启发,她继续说:“我们每一个人,生活在同一个星球,我们应该团结一致,一同抗疫。我们应该珍惜现在的岁月静好,更应该感恩那些为我们负重前行的人。”

  United to support the world and its fight against COVID-19, parents worked with connections and personal resources to order wholesale medical quality 3M masks for doctors and nurses in the US. The parents chose to support medical works in the US because, “Our kids are studying in an American school, so parents feel more connected to the U.S emotionally,” the mother of Denise (Grade 11) said. Having just fought COVID-19 in China and inspired by the Confucian tradition, she continued, “everyone on this planet should unite as one to fight. Cherish the safe life we have and be grateful and helpful to those who are fighting for us.”

  我们选择合作的组织是由居住在佛罗里达州的华裔薛静管理的,她了解自己作为具有中国传统的美国公民的责任,她希望可以利用她在中国的资源来支援美国医疗团队战疫。“这是一场全球危机,不分人,不分种族,不分国家,没有人可以幸免于此。这是整个人类与COVID-19的对抗,我们肩并肩,共进退。

  The organization the parents selected to work with is managed by Xue Jing, a Chinese-American living in Florida, who understands her responsibility as an American citizen with Chinese heritage, to use her resources across the country and in China to support American doctors and nurses fighting the virus in the US. “This is a global crisis. No one, no race, no country can be immured from this. It is a war between human beings and COVID-19. We are all in this together. One world.”

  鉴于这样的出发点,薛静在3月初成立了“支援美国医院”的微信小组,目的是与中国的供应商获得联系,购买防疫物资,在全球范围内捐赠支援医疗团队。她表示她的朋友在美国南加州Memorial Health System当医生,她们急需个人防护医疗设备。

  So, Xue Jing started a “Help U.S. Hospitals” WeChat group in early March, “for the purpose of connecting hospitals and donating individuals/organizations across the nation, with PPE suppliers in China.” Working with her friend who is a doctor, she identified the Memorial Health system in south Florida as a medical system in dire need of PPEs.

  薛静在描述这场口罩援助时说道:“我与ALAIS中40个家庭的不可思议的旅程开始于2020年3月28日。那天,和我一起做口罩捐赠工作的朋友Xu Shaojing打电话给告诉我,她的高中朋友与上海LEE美国高中的学生家长一起,正在组织一次大规模的口罩捐赠活动支援美国医院。然后我认识了来自LEE的学生家长黄文静女士,我们在微信群里分享了美国当地医院对口罩的迫切需求,以及我们这个组织的目的和目标。ALAIS的捐赠小组收集资金,购买质量最好的口罩,最让我感到惊讶的速度把这批口罩送到了我们手里。ALAIS的同情心和无条件的爱越过大洋,来到了美国的东南部。我们从ALAIS收到了2000个口罩,这是有史以来最大的N95捐赠。这些珍贵的N95被分发到了南佛罗里达州的10多家医院,保护了数百名急诊室和重症监护室的医生和护士。Dr. Kevin Yungman,来自韦斯顿的克利夫兰诊所的急诊医生,他是收到这份慷慨礼物的众人之一,他说:“你们是我们的天使,我们永远感谢您的慷慨和爱心。”

  She described her work with ALAIS:“My incredible journey with the 40 families of ALAIS started on 3/28. My friend shaojing Xu, who works with me on the face mask donation effort, called me on that day and shared with me some exciting news. Her high school friend, along with a group of parents of American Lee Academy in Shanghai, was organizing a large-scale face mask donation to support hospitals in U.S. I was then introduced to Mrs. Wenjing Huang and she later invited me to join her donation working group. I shared with the group the desperate need for masks from our local hospitals, the purpose and goal of my organization, the hospitals we selected to support, and our execution plan. The ALAIS donation working group amazed me by working around the clock to collect money, purchase best quality face masks, and deliver to me in an incredibly timely fashion. Their compassion and unconditional love crossed the ocean and reached the southeast end of the U.S.A. We received around 2,000 N95s from ALAIS, the largest donation of N95s we ever received. These invaluable N95s were donated to over 10 hospitals in South Florida and help protect hundreds of ER and ICU doctors and nurses. Dr. Kevin Yungman, the ER doctor from Cleveland Clinic Florida in Weston is one of the many who received this generous gift from the other end of the earth. He said, “ You all are angels to us. We are forever grateful for your generosity and love.”

  感恩与Lee的遇见。因为孩子的求学,有幸加入了Lee。后来发现犹如加入了一个大家庭。因为从老师到家长都有着相同的向往和追求。我们希望孩子们能有广阔的视野,宽阔的胸怀,在生活和学习中感受被爱,操练付出。亦如这次疫情中,我们口罩限购的时候,校方从自己的渠道筹集了口罩,每家每户地为我们邮寄。相信这样的举措在国际学校中也是罕见的。身为Lee的一员,我们有被呵护的温暖。同样这次向美国医疗捐赠物资,虽未曾踏到那片土地,却如同做在亲人的身上。学生们自己设计的海报,灵动热情如家书。之所以素未谋面而不陌生,因为人心懂人心。
