Many thanks to the Consul General of France for highlighting the donation of BNP Paribas to PFA at the Residence de France

Alexandre Giorgini, Consul General of France in Hong Kong and Macau, hosted a lunch to underscore the impact of the donation made by BNP Paribas Hong Kong to the Pasteur Foundation Asia (PFA) in support of research on SARS-COV-2.
 
In keeping with the regional goals of PFA, this donation will support two PhD students at HKU-Pasteur Research Pole and a One Health project to identify potentially zoonotic coronaviruses in the wild animal value chains at the Institut Pasteur of Cambodia.
 
After discussing research, funding and strategic response to the COVID-19 pandemic, PFA and BNP Paribas committed to further their collaboration to keep Hong Kong at the forefront of biomedical research on infectious diseases.
 
To support our efforts in the long run to overcome the pandemic and prepare a safe and secure environment for everyone, you can donate to the ongoing campaign:
