Sorry for not having sent out any update last week. I am making it up now.
Meeting 18/5 – Speaker from YMCA
We are trying to target for some youth projects for the coming year, hence we invited staff from YMCA to introduce us projects that we may consider to support. They introduced us the project of “YM Channel”, the mission of bringing youth voices and perspectives to the community through internet radio broadcasting. The objectives are to develop youth’s potential and accessibility to multi-variate activities and to cultivate youth’s optimistic mindedness and introspective abilities.
Meeting 25/5 – Speaker – Consul General of Peru
We donated US$5,000.00 for the recent flooding relief of Peru from the wine sales and silver sponsor MGM of the 70th Ball. We invited Mr. Sergio Avila, Consul General of Peru to speak to us about the disaster and also for the cheque presentation ceremony. The CG told us that this kind of flooding happens every 10 years and now may be more frequent due to the climate change. Please find below the link of the Macao Daily News of the press release of the donation presentation ceremony.
