Macau.- Slot machine manufacturer Aristocrat Macau has donated a tranche of face masks as part of efforts to halt the Coronavirus outbreak in the city.
The masks will be sent directly to the Health Bureau, the Education and Youth Affairs Bureau and the Higher Education Bureau for distribution to frontline staff and schools in need.
“It’s sad to see the community and industry impacted by the events surrounding COVID-19. At Aristocrat, we take our role as a corporate citizen in Macau seriously and are proud that we can support our community when they need it most.
“We look forward to seeing these masks being distributed amongst the schools, charities and various local organisations who are in need,” Lloyd Robson, Sales & Business Development Director APAC, said.
