YSMAIL ADAM ABDELKHADIR, a graduate student from Chad, said that he hardly believed that Wuhan, which suffered a major disaster a few months ago, could be so dynamic and orderly. Seeing is believing. He would tell his family and friends about what he has seen in China, so that they can understand what Wuhan and China has experienced. He believes that in the face of the epidemic, people of all ages, genders and nationalities should participate in fighting against the epidemic together, because we are in a "community with a shared future for mankind". He thanked the Chinese government and people for sharing their anti-epidemic experience selflessly with the world, and hoped that other countries could learn from it so as to handle the epidemic as soon as possible.
Rwandan graduate student INEMA ELYSE said, "Through communicating with students from Huazhong University of Science and Technology, China University of Geosciences (Wuhan) and Central China Normal University, I have met many outstanding friends of different grades, schools, and nationalities. They shared their experiences during the epidemic. I also exchanged a lot of puzzles about learning with them. By visiting YOFC, I learned about the development of Chinese companies. I hope that I could have the opportunity to work in some Chinese enterprises in our country in the future, so as to give play to my strong points and cross-cultural communication ability, and contribute to the construction of my home country."
