Galaxy Entertainment Group has announced that it has donated MOP$25 million to help Hubei Province and Macau fight the spread of the Coronavirus.
The donation includes MOP$20 million through Galaxy Entertainment Group Foundation to Hubei Province to help the region fight against the outbreak caused and assist in relief efforts, and another MOP$5 million to assist the Macau community in its preventive measures.
In Hubei, the MOP$20 million will specifically be used to purchase medical supplies and equipment that are in urgent demand in the region, while the MOP$5 million Macau donation aims to help local residents in need, including young children, students and the elderly, in prevention of the virus.
In its announcement, Galaxy said a special company task force has been in close contact with the related parties in the hope of accelerating implementation of the initiative.
Galaxy had previously donated disinfection and hygiene products to the Women’s General Association of Macau and the Fuhong Society of Macau to better prepare their staff in providing assistance with the sales of surgical masks to the public.
