MGM China today donated 500,000 surgical masks to the Macau government. They were presented in one go by MGM China’s CEO, Grant Bowie, and President, Kenneth Feng, to Ao Leong Iu, Secretary for Social Affairs and Culture.
Pansy Ho, Co-chairperson of MGM China, said, “The glamor of Macau is temporarily dimmed by the epidemic, but our warmth keeps growing. Macau is a cohesive society where people utilize respective strengths to help each other. As part of the Macau community, MGM spares no effort to help protect everyone’s health and work for their well-being. Under the leadership of the Macau government, I strongly believe that we will win this battle against the epidemic in unity. Cheer up, Hubei! Cheer up, Macau!”
MGM continues to support different sectors throughout the epidemic. The company has previously supplied the frontline and service staff of Macau Federation of Trade Unions (FAOM), General Union of Neighborhood Associations of Macau (UGAMM) and Caritas Macau with masks, disposable caps and other necessary items. It also distributed 1,000 supply kits to the elderly in need through the three organizations, allowing them to stay worry-free at home during the epidemic.
Earlier, MGM donated MOP 20 million, made in coordination with the Liaison Office of the Central People’s Government in the Macao SAR, to help Hubei province purchase preventive and medical supplies, as well as urgently needed materials and equipment. Furthermore, understanding the hardship its retail tenants especially the local SMEs are facing during this difficult time, MGM announced to waive their rents for 15 days in order to alleviate their burdens. All in all, MGM will continue to exert itself to support anti-epidemic measures in collaboration with the Macau SAR government and the community.
