Sands China Redoubles Disaster and Pandemic Prevention Efforts

Sanitisation and emergency typhoon response kits,

community seminar and new social media campaign

Supported by the Social Affairs Bureau, Sands China Ltd. has further bolstered its disaster and pandemic prevention programme in collaboration with Macau Red Cross.

The programme addresses the community’s needs amid the fight against the pandemic, and aims to help enhance the city’s precautionary measures before natural disasters like typhoons and during emergency situations.
The company initiative comprises the packing and distribution of sanitisation and emergency response kits, and a social media campaign and free community seminar on emergency preparedness and epidemic prevention.
Around 50 Sands Cares Ambassadors assembled 800 sanitisation and emergency response kits containing COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) kits and a variety of anti-pandemic, disaster preparation, and emergency items inside a multi-functional waterproof bag. It is Sands China’s fourth year supporting the initiative, benefiting 2,900 households to date.
Sands China offered a Macau Red Cross pandemic and disaster prevention seminar June 9 and 14 for about 100 members of the General Union of Neighbourhood Associations of Macao and Caritas Macau to share useful knowledge including pandemic and disaster prevention, sheltering at home, and sources of accurate emergency information.
Sands China also ran a social media campaign June 10-16, titled Sands Cares Presents: What you need to know about epidemic and disaster prevention, which included an online quiz aimed at increasing knowledge among the general public.
Sands China’s community initiatives and the company’s Sands Cares Ambassador programme are part of Sands Cares, the global corporate citizenship programme of parent company Las Vegas Sands Corp.
The Sands Cares Ambassador programme was established in August 2009 to give Sands China team members an outlet for serving the local community by organising community activities and initiatives that work toward creating a better Macao. With membership of more than 3,300 volunteers from across all Sands China properties – Sands Macao, The Venetian Macao, The Plaza Macao, The Parisian Macao and The Londoner Macao – the Sands Cares Ambassadors have contributed more than 175,000 hours of voluntary community service since the programme’s founding.
