Wynn Fully Supports Local Community in Combating COVID-19
Donation to benefit local SMEs, community organizations and underprivileged groups
Macau, March 6, 2020 – As a local enterprise dedicated to Macau, Wynn recently pledged to donate MOP 5 million to support those in the local community who are most affected by the epidemic, including local small and medium enterprises (SMEs), social enterprises, community organizations, and underprivileged groups in society. Today, Wynn made the donation and delivered anti-epidemic supplies to various institutions, with the coordination of the Social Welfare Bureau of the Macau SAR Government, in the hope of supporting the local community in combating the epidemic.
On behalf of Wynn, Ms. Linda Chen, Vice Chairman and Executive Director of Wynn Macau, Limited, donated a total of MOP 1.75 million and anti-epidemic supplies to over 50 community organizations this afternoon, witnessed by Mr. Hon Wai, Acting Director of the Social Welfare Bureau. The donation is to assist a number of residential homes and facilities for children and youth, temporary shelters, drug treatment centers and nurseries in Macau, with the aim of helping to protect employment and for these organizations to maintain operations, thereby ensuring that users of these services will not be affected by the epidemic.
Wynn also donated a range of anti-epidemic supplies, including face masks and hand sanitizer, to Tung Sin Tong. The donation was presented to a delegation from Tung Sin Tong including President of Board of Directors Mr. José Chui Sai Peng, Vice Chairman of Board of Directors Mr. Lao Ngai Leong, Presidents of Director Ms. Angela Lam, Mr. Charles Choy and Mr. Shi Chong Rong. Wynn hopes that this will enable the medical personnel at Tung Sin Tong's clinics and pharmacies to continue to provide services to Macau residents in a safe and healthy workplace environment. Led by the delegates of Tung Sin Tong, Linda Chen visited one of the clinics and learned about the services they provide as well as their epidemic prevention and control work. She also expressed her gratitude to the frontline medical personnel for their hard work, selfless dedication and resolute commitment during this critical period.
To improve the learning environment for students from low-income families in Macau, Wynn also donated a total of 20 electronic devices to facilitate online learning to the Salvation Army (Macau) Education Center, which were received by Dr. Carl Cheng, Educational Services Director of the Salvation Army, Hong Kong & Macau Command. During the current school suspension period, this will enable students to better receive education information as well as to appreciate society's support for them during the epidemic outbreak.
