The service users were invited to visit the Chinese New Year Market held by Galaxy Macau and GEG volunteers paid a visit and delivered festive gifts to them on the fourth day of the Chinese New Year to spread warmth, care and respect to Macau’s elderly community. 

Prior to the Chinese New Year, GEG invited 30 elderly users of Peng On Tung to the Chinese New Year market of Galaxy Macau, during which, Mr. Philip Cheng, Director of GEG, presented a MOP200,000 cheque to Ms. Ng Siu Lai, President of UGAMM on behalf of the UGAMM Peng On Tung Charity Foundation.

The funds will go towards the sponsorship of UGAMM’s Community Caring Program, which GEG has been sponsoring for six consecutive years, and subsidize the underprivileged to use Peng On Tung’s services.

In addition to the cheque presentation, GEG also arranged for the elderly users to visit the Chinese New Year Market and enjoy the Galaxy Macau Diamond Show. Meanwhile, GEG volunteers also presented them with festive gift packs and flowers purchased from social enterprises, in hopes of sharing the festive joy whilst supporting the development of local social services organizations.
