The association, which promotes Scotland in China, worked with the Henan Provincial Government in China. The Henan Provincial Government donated the masks, which will be distributed to councils across Scotland.
The Scotland China International Association UK is delivering the supplies with the help of UN Scotland and the British Born Young Talent Association (BBYTA).
