Tzu Chi Foundation recently donated a Hyper Light Disinfection Robot to the Chinese General Hospital and Medical Center (CGHMC) in a turnover ceremony live-streamed in Taiwan.


Distributed by Taiwan-based Mediland Enterprises Corporation, the Hyper Light Disinfection Robot uses ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) to thoroughly disinfect hospital rooms and facilities, preventing healthcare-associated infections, including COVID-19.



“This disinfection robot is highly effective in eliminating over 99 percent of viruses and bacteria, especially multidrug-resistant organisms. We hope you will find it helpful in maintaining hospital infection control and safety,” said Jiang Xinhui, director and representative of Mediland Enterprise Corporation. Tzu Chi Philippines CEO Henry Yuñez later presented a certificate of appreciation to Mediland for its kind donation.


“The old UV light takes about half an hour to sterilize a room,” said CGHMC Medical Director Dr. Samuel Ang. “This robot takes only five minutes. This means a patient’s room can be disinfected faster and more efficiently. The turnover time will be significantly shorter, and that’s a lot of help for us.”



“On behalf of the entire Chinese General Hospital, our profound gratitude to the Tzu Chi Foundation and Jiang Xinhui for the generous donation of this UV light robot. It really makes a difference in saving more lives.”



Also present in the event were Philippine Overseas Chinese Charity Association Chairman Lu Zuyin, Tzu Chi Charity Foundation CEO Yan Bowen, Mr. Xie Mingzhou, CGHMC Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Kelly Sia, and other members of CGHMC.
