pandemic has been rampaging across the world, threatening lives, and disrupting

Ted Wen, Chairman of the two foundations, said, “this is a critical moment for human beings. No
single country or person can control the crisis alone. We need everyone to take
actions.” Mr. Wen further elaborated that “quarantine is not distance, but can
be a thought of as a new way to live. And this new lifestyle can be the key to
defeating COVID-19.”


The video production is the brainchild of Audrey Yang, Vice Chairman
of the foundations. The messages relayed are that “It’s time for all of us to stand up, and by protecting yourself, you can
protect many, and thus the world. The willpower of individuals can forge into a
global strength to safeguard public health and save lives.”


Most countries have imposed
lockdown and closed borders to restrict the movement of individuals in a disparate effort to contain spread of the deadly
virus. The drastic measures alone are not strong enough to crush the
virus that we know very little about. Everyone’s participation is needed in
order to beat COVID-19.


Four stories are told in the video to stress that by starting from
protecting yourself, you can make changes to the world. The up-pointing index
finger means “protect one and protect everyone.”


The segments depict how residents from different corners of
the world are coping with unprecedented threats in their life. They show how
the individuals, from different cultures and age groups, do their best to fight
the coronavirus in an effort to protect themselves, their family, and society,
with hopes to restore peace and order in their hometown.


The iSee Taiwan Foundation was founded by late entrepreneur
Sayling Wen In 2003. The foundation’s vision is to become an essential portal
for the world to see Taiwan via cultural tourism. The Sayling Wen Cultural
& Educational Foundation’s vision is to provide talents for future society
by promoting industrial value oriented lifelong learning.
