City of Dreams Manila gives P50M COVID19 relief goods
City of Dreams Manila developer Melco Resorts & Entertainment (Philippines) Corp. is contributing P50 million worth of food packs to the government’s relief efforts during the month-long Luzon-wide quarantine.
“We are heeding the call to lend a helping hand in mitigating the economic situation of those most in need during this temporary COVID-19 crisis. Hand in hand through the spirit of bayanihan, we’re one with the government and other private sectors as we do our part in combatting this pandemic,” City of Dreams Manila chief operating officer Kevin Benning said on behalf of MRP Foundation.
The donation – undertaken in coordination with the Philippine Amusement & Gaming Corp. (PAGCOR) – consists of 125,000 food packs each containing rice, canned goods, noodles and water intended to help vulnerable families tide over the challenges during the period of the enhanced community quarantine.
Earlier, the integrated gaming resort also donated bottles of water to the Parañaque city government, alongside food packs for the city’s disaster and rescue team and the local health office. It is currently lending its fleet of seven buses to help transport health workers in and around the city under the direction of the city government.
