The hygiene kits contain soap that has been sterilised and recycled through Clean the World’s remanufacturing process, after being collected from hotels at Sands China’s integrated resorts. Each kit also comes with shampoo, conditioner, bath gel, a toothbrush set, and an encouraging message from Sands China and Clean the World.
Sands China and Clean the World have assembled close to 356,000 kits since 2014. The annual hygiene kit build is an initiative of Sands China’s parent company, Las Vegas Sands Corp. (LVS), and helps Clean the World distribute emergency response hygiene kits to assist with on-the-ground, immediate needs in times of crisis and disaster.
“This enduring collaboration exemplifies Sands China’s dedication to make a positive difference in the lives of others. We remain steadfast in our commitment to contribute to a healthier, more sustainable world for all.” said Dr. Wilfred Wong, president of Sands China.
Gyneth Tan, Managing Director of Clean the World Asia told Platform that the model with Sands China is they sponsor the venue and manpower to to assemble the hygiene kits, while Clean the World take care of the materials distribute it out to the beneficiaries.
”Sands Cares team has really worked so hard and enthusiastically to help us plan all this event for the last 10 years. It’s been a very strong relationship, even through the challenging times of the pandemic.”
Approximately 200 volunteers from Sands China and the Rotary Club of Macau joined together to build this year’s hygiene kits at Cotai Expo. Global charity Children International will distribute the finished kits to families in need in the Philippines.
As the largest private employer in Macao, Sands China expects to create a multiple reaction through the Sands Cares platform,” said Annie Lam, Director of Community Affairs of Sands China. “A platform that allows employees to better understand and care for those in need in the Macao community through social services.”
