In unison with the national government’s and private sector’s collective efforts in combatting COVID-19 and to aid fellow Filipinos affected by the pandemic, Melco Resorts (Philippines) Foundation Corporation (MRP Foundation) – the charitable arm of City of Dreams Manila’s developer, Melco Resorts and Entertainment (Philippines) Corporation – in coordination with the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR), is donating P50 million worth of food packs for the government’s food relief efforts during the Enhanced Community Quarantine across Luzon.

“We are heeding the call to lend a helping hand in mitigating the economic situation of those most in need during this temporary COVID-19 crisis. Hand in hand through the spirit of bayanihan, we’re one with the government and other private sectors as we do our part in combatting this pandemic,” City of Dreams Manila’s Chief Operating Officer Kevin Benning said on behalf of MRP Foundation. He also thanked PAGCOR Chairman Andrea Domingo for the swift approval of the release of the funds.

The donation consists of 125,000 food packs each containing rice, canned goods, noodles, and water, which aims to help vulnerable families tide over the challenges during the period of the Enhanced Community Quarantine. The skeletal workforce who are on the property is helping pack the bags that will be immediately turned over to the Office of the President.

Earlier, the resort also donated ample bottles of water to the Parañaque city government, and food packs for the city’s Disaster and Rescue Team and the Local Health Office. It is currently lending its fleet of seven buses to help transport health workers in and around the city under the direction of the city government.
