Letter from Dr. Lui Che Woo Chairman Galaxy Entertainment Group Limited

I wish to share with you my personal grief on the devastating impact of Typhoons Hato and Pakhar experienced by everyone in the Macau community, a place where we all call home.

On Wednesday August 23rd, Typhoon Hato, the most powerful and destructive Typhoon in over half a century, swiftly descended on Macau and caused wide spread damage to Macau and significant hardship to its citizens including many of our Team Members. GEG’s properties were damaged, but fortunately, there were only minor injuries reported which was such a big relief to me and the whole GEG family.

We greatly appreciate every single person who has contributed their time and effort to help  during  such  a  difficult  time.  However,  I  would  like  to  express  my  sincere condolences to the family and friends of the people who perished and the citizens who sustained injury as a result of the devastating destruction brought by the two typhoons plus so many who have suffered.

Macau has endured the storm and is now focused on recovering and rebuilding with the helping hands of many, including GEG, which is a testament to the will, strength and character of the Macau people. The community is rallying around each other and together we will all move forward with a very bright future. We too at GEG will continue to actively support the community in these challenging times. Our teams at Galaxy Macau, StarWorld and Broadway are contributing to the relief efforts in a variety of ways ranging from substantial donations of goods and services including food, water and trucks for debris removal to a number of team members volunteering to help Macau in areas of need from clean up efforts to delivering food and water to the elderly.

I am pleased to announce a $60 million contribution including $30 million from the GEG Foundation plus a $30 million matching contribution from the Lui family to support the relief efforts of the people of Macau as well as our GEG team members during this challenging   and   stressful   period   including   materials   and   resources   of   K   Wah Construction Materials. We look forward to working with the Macau government to determine the most effective way to deploy our contribution during this critically important period. 

We can all learn from this traumatizing experience and be better prepared in the future, including GEG. I encourage unity within society to work together to rebuild our community.

I  would  like  to  thank  all  the  hearts  and  souls  who  have  worked  to  restore  Macau including the resilient citizens of Macau, the Macau and Central Governments, the People’s Liberation Army, the countless volunteers, and, as always, our family of GEG Team Members.

Thank you!

Dr. Lui Che Woo
