Africa: “Stand Strong! We Root For You”

In Mauritania, the president of Nouakchott University, Ahmedou Haoba says, “The Nouakchott University has been working on Chinese teaching with Chinese universities for a very long time. In the past 10 years, China, our partner Hebei University of China in particular, has been supporting us in building undergraduate programs.

China and Mauritania have a long and friendly relationship. The recent outbreak of novel coronavirus poses a big trouble for China and the whole world. But we believe that China can control it. China's high level of medical treatment and its cooperation with other countries and the World Health Organization will certainly be able to overcome the pandemic. We have also been paying close attention to our students studying in China, especially in Wuhan. Wish China get well soon!”

In Congo, Mary, foreign dean of Confucius Institute at Congo Foreign Affairs University says, “The Confucius Institute at our university expresses its support for the Chinese people in the face of COVID-19. Suffering makes us stronger, and we believe that the Chinese people will overcome the pandemic.”

In Tunisia, the teachers and students of Confucius Institute at University of Carthage write blessings such as "Peaceful China" and "Stay strong Wuhan" in Chinese and Arabic, each word carrying a heavy load of concern and wishes.

Some students say that China and Tunisia are both characterized by solidarity and love. They believe that Chinese friends can overcome the disease and tide over difficulties at an early date. Xu Rixuan, dean of the Chinese faculty of the Confucius Institute at University of Carthage, also says that although the teachers of Confucius Institute are abroad, their hearts are always with their motherland. The pandemic prevented them from meeting, but not from loving each other. The teachers of Confucius Institute are always ready to contribute their own strength to the fight against the pandemic in Wuhan.

In Tanzania, the students from the training centers at St. Christina's girls' High School and St. Matthews High School of the Confucius Institute at University of Dar es Salaam, expressed their blessings respectively in the form of hand drawing and poetry reading. “Stay strong, China!”, “Stay strong, Wuhan!” and “Wish everyone peace and health!”. In a shout after another, they also pass on the blessings and strength for China.

In addition, the Confucius Institutes at Hassan II University in Morocco, University of Cabo Verde, the University of Comores, University of Zambia, Addis Ababa University in Ethiopia and Antananarivo University in Madagascar also send their support and wishes to China.
