Sands China Remains Strong Supporter of UGAMM

Sponsorship of haircuts for elderly, among other initiatives

                                                         

(Macao, Oct. 22, 2019) – With corporate social responsibility remaining a key area of focus for Sands China Ltd., the company continues to maintain its ongoing support to Macao’s various social service organisations. Recently, Sands China again sponsored the elderly haircut initiative launched by the General Union of Neighbourhood Associations of Macau (UGAMM).
 

Since 2010, Sands China has been a supporter of UGAMM’s programmes and has donated MOP 2 million to the organisation to date, benefiting nearly 6,800 live-alone elderly.
 

The company has been a supporter of the Peng On Tung Tele-Assistance programme since 2010, has been providing a home maintenance team for the elderly since 2015, and has supported the elderly haircut initiative since 2016. Sands China sponsored this year’s UGAMM Haircut for the Elderly event – which was attended by 300 elderly UGAMM members – and presented UGAMM with a ceremonial donation cheque for MOP 240,000 at the event.
 

“UGAMM remains a valuable partner in working to better our shared community,” said Dr. Wilfred Wong, president of Sands China Ltd. “Macao’s elderly are a living treasure to be cherished, and Sands China is pleased to show how much we value this important part of our community through our support of UGAMM, an organisation that continues to work tirelessly for the benefit of Macao’s elderly community.”
 

Leong Heng Kao, president of the General Union of Neighbourhood Associations of Macau, said: “UGAMM is very grateful for Sands China’s many years of support. Like us, they believe in fostering community harmony and solidarity, and in promoting care and respect to senior citizens. Their contributions – of time, energy, and funds – have been an important source of advancement and promotion for UGAMM. We look forward to many more years of service together.”
