At Aristocrat, we believe in giving back to the communities where we live and work and also contributing to initiatives that reflect the values of Aristocrat and those of our employees. As the spread of COVID-19 mounts globally, The Philippines has taken strong and decisive action to temper the reach of the virus through country wide lockdowns. The containment effort is strengthened by the dedication of Doctors, Nurses, and other front-line health workers, providing medical support to those afflicted across the country.
By partnering with the City of Dreams Casino and utilising their transportation, Aristocrat were proud to donate 1,700 food packages to medical infrastructure sites across ten Hospitals and Medical Centres for use in providing for staff, family and the communities in which they operate. City of Dreams has also worked with local hospitals at Makati Medical Centre, UP PGH and St Luke’s Medical Centre, to provide complimenting medical supplies and food donations for staff while throughout the crisis.
These food packages were distributed in the area of Paranaque in Manila to enable the community, staff, and families to have access to essential food ingredients such as pasta, rice, canned fish, and meat during the country-wide lockdown.
Lloyd Robson, General Manager of Aristocrat (Asia-Pacific) said, “We know this is a challenging and unsettling time for the local community of Paranaque and we wanted them to know that they are not alone, and together we will get through this. We’re committed to helping wherever we can, and this is just one way that Aristocrat is giving back to the communities in which we live and work.”
Aristocrat has a deep history with the Philippines market, and is committed to enriching the communities in which we operate and honour those giving their all, in the challenging times that COVID-19 presents us. Our thoughts and best wishes are with everyone during this time.
