A group of around 60 Sands Cares Ambassadors and winners of the company’s Because We Care Team Member Awards recently went on a three-day trip funded by Sands China to visit families in Guizhou’s Congjiang County.
The team members visited a local primary school of around 270 students, passing out schoolbags and stationery packs in classrooms and interacting with students, who performed two songs to welcome the visitors.
According to a statement issued by the gaming operator, the team visited 25 families, where they gave away quilts, canned food, biscuits and sweets. Some team members had also purchased scarves, gloves and clothing storage boxes for the families.
While visiting the village, team members also took a look at the solar street lamps Sands China had finished installing in September. A total of 560 solar-powered street lamps has been installed in five Congjiang villages, with the six-month project requiring 1.6 million patacas to accomplish.
