The France Macau Chamber of Commerce (FMCC) celebrated its 10th Anniversary Charity Gala Dinner on January 26th, 2018, themed "Extravagance au Moulin Rouge" and raised close to MOP 80,000 to support Macao Fok Sin Association's "Visit the Elderly" project.
The project provided visits and useful gifts to underprivileged elderly residents with low mobility, who do not have families and who lack emotional and financial support. On February 10th and 11th took place the visits to 80 elderly households before Chinese New Year, and FMCC Chairman and members joined Macao Fok Sin Association volunteers on the 11th. Part of the visits took place in the social housing complex in the Ilha Verde district and in Coloane. The group of volunteers besides distributing the kits with food supplies and useful gifts to the elderly, they also brought smiles, attention and warmness. The kits contained a cane umbrella, reading glasses, a cotton coat, a wool hat and scarf, organic rice, cooking oil and soya sauce, noodles, oatmeal and supermarket coupons.
