Melco Cyprus and CNS Group Donate Fire Vehicles to Local Communities

Melco Cyprus, operator of Cyprus Casinos (“C2”) and the upcoming integrated resort (IR) City of Dreams Mediterranean, in collaboration with CNS Group, a member of the Integrated Casino Resorts Cyprus Consortium (“ICR Cyprus”), had recently donated and delivered five lightweight fire emergency response vehicles to communities affected by the wildfires which devasted rural areas of Larnaca and Limassol in July 2021.

Complementing the government’s efforts towards the cause, the initiative aims to support impacted communities’ relief, recovery and prevention efforts by enhancing their ability to act as first responders during emergencies. The initiative will improve the communities’ ability to tackle the threat of potentially destructive wildfires like the one witnessed in 2021.

 Melco Cyprus and CNS Group have also contributed to restore ‘Iamatiki’ District Elementary School in Eptagonia, the area’s main primary education facility, which was heavily damaged in the 2021 fire. The school hosts pupils from numerous communities around Eptagonia, such as Akapnou, Arakapas, Dierona, Kellaki, Klonari, Melini, Odou, Prastio, Profitis Elias, and Sykopetra. The donation will be used to repair damage as well as significantly upgrade the school’s premises, thereby improving the pupils’ learning experience. The value of the contribution to the affected communities reaches EUR250,000.

 Lawrence Ho, CEO, Melco, said, “Melco’s initiatives to supply the rural communities of Limassol and Larnaca with fire emergency response vehicles is part of the company’s fundamental corporate social responsibility philosophy to give back to the community. As a committed partner of the local Cyprus community, we aim to create a positive social impact on all levels through volunteering, donations, and other charitable activities. This donation will assist the local government in improving emergency response capacities while enhancing the residents’ sense of security and wellbeing.”
