Nepalese team members of Sands China Ltd have raised MOP81,000 ($10,150) to go towards helping relief efforts following an earthquake that devastated their country last month.
Mukesh K. Barruwal and representatives of the Nepalese team from Sands China presented the cheque to the Macau Red Cross, the Macau Daily Times reported citing a press release from Sands.
“We call on our team members to continue to donate, especially by Friday, May 15 – when the company will match dollar-for-dollar the total donations received for Macau Red Cross,” the statement read. As of yesterday, the Macau Red Cross had collected MOP2,847,144.57 for the Nepal earthquake,” Sands China said.
Sands China’s efforts follow those of casinos in Nepal which say they have also been offering aid and are back to being open for business.
