Fund-raising campaign for Sichuan earthquake victims

On 12 May 2008, a massive earthquake measuring 8 on Richter scale had caused heavy casualties and immense economic loses in Sichuan Province of China.

In response to this catastrophe, Cosmos Group has launched a fund-raising campaign on 14 May 2008 to appeal to its staff members to make donations for the earthquake victims in Sichuan, and to show their support and caring for the community. Apart from this, Cosmos Group agreed to match all staff donations 1:1 in order to encourage more staff members to join the campaign.

By the end of May, a donation plus matching fund of more than HK$1,700,000 has been raised and handed over to the "Liaison Office of the Central People's Government in the HKSAR - Special A/C for Disaster Relief" and mainland charitable organizations respectively in the name of "Cosmos Machinery Enterprises Limited" for emergency relief, rehabilitation and reconstruction in the devastated areas of Sichuan.
