Melco volunteers enact ‘Simple Acts of Kindness’ philosophy – first phase highlights targeted outreach and support for local SMEs Close to 1,200 calls made to Macau SMEs

Recently, Melco Resorts & Entertainment Chairman & CEO Mr. Lawrence Ho mobilized the Company’s workforce en masse to support the local community during work hours. In response to this, hundreds of Melco volunteers are being deployed to enact the Simple Acts of Kindness philosophy.

The Simple Acts of Kindness philosophy is based on the principle that a multitude of little things can have a big impact. Since February this year, as part of the Company’s commitment to local suppliers and SMEs, Melco volunteers have made calls to 1,185 SMEs to communicate and identify where help is needed. Melco volunteers are aiding local SMEs and related associations such as the Macao Chamber of Commerce with various cleaning, disinfecting and sanitizing projects for offices, warehouses, storefronts and factories.

Mr. Lawrence Ho, Chairman & CEO of Melco Resorts & Entertainment, said, “Especially in these times of uncertainty and adversity, we stand with the Macau SAR government in offering our wholehearted support to local SMEs who form the backbone of the city’s economy. We are hugely grateful to our employees for their enthusiastic participation to enact Melco’s Simple Acts of Kindness philosophy, promoting thoughtfulness and appreciation towards our local community.”

The Macao Chamber of Commerce commented, “We are encouraged to see an integrated resort operator like Melco offer assistance and care for local SME business owners and workers during these challenging and unprecedented times. Together with support from the Macau government, businesses and the community, we are certain SMEs will overcome the current situation stronger than ever to continue contributing to the city’s sustainable development.”

 

Mr Lam, owner of San Hoi Lei U Lan, said, “The Melco volunteers arrived this morning at 9am and have been working hard to help clean the place. I’m impressed by their dedication. I would like to thank them for lending a much needed helping hand.”
