Around 60 Sands Cares Ambassadors assisted children with special educational needs and their families at The Venetian Macao’s Cotai Expo Sunday for an afternoon of fun activities at the Special Cares Network Carnival.

Nearly 600 participants attended the carnival, which offered various activities including photo-shooting, collecting souvenirs and snacks, and game booths, the gaming operator said in a statement.

Sponsored by Sands China Ltd., the Special Cares Network Carnival aims to provide opportunities for children with special educational needs to enjoy a fun outing with their families, while encouraging the strengthening of society’s care for and support of children with special educational needs.
