Macau, April 19th, 2021 – The France Macau Chamber of Commerce (FMCC) 2021 Charity Gala Dinner, will be themed “A Night at the Museum” , and will be held at MGM Macau on May 28th. The chamber is excited to renew its support for a third year to Macao Fok Sin Association (MFS), for their project “Visit the Elderly” which organizes personal visits and hand useful gifts to unprivileged groups of local elderly with low mobility, who lack emotional and financial support and miss out on having caring family members.
In recent years, FMCC raised funds to benefit numerous Macanese charity organizations, with aim to support the local community in different ways. During the previous Charity Gala Dinner, thanks to the generous donations of guests and sponsors, FMCC raised 70,000 MOP to support MFS’ “Visit the Elderly” project. In 2019, FMCC members joined hands with MFS for visits over 4 days to underprivileged elderly households, in the social housing complex of Ilha Verde district and Coloane. The group of volunteers distributed gift packages to more than 200 elderly households. Each kit contained a FMCC customized blanket, organic rice, cooking oil, soya sauce, noodles, oatmeal.
After the successful experience in 2019, FMCC decided to renew their support to MFS for a third time, to continue to bring warmness and care for the unprivileged elderly. FMCC expects to raise a remarkable amount again this year through sales of raffle tickets where fantastic prizes can be won. We would like to thank the individuals and companies who continually support this yearly event through valuable sponsorship, donations and time.
