Caring the Communities during COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic causes adverse effects in many areas, and people from all walks of life encounter hardship. We see it as our responsibility to support the communities we serve. That is why we have responded quickly to combat COVID-19 and positively contribute to the people across the districts. The construction of a vaccination centre, provision of Rapid Antigen Test Kits, implementation of Vaccination Promotion Programs, and provision of support for quarantined visitors were a few measures taken.
Responding swiftly to the Fifth Wave of COVID-19
When the fifth wave of COVID-19 hit in March 2022, the Group, with another real estate developer, offered a new pop-up Community Vaccination Centre (“CVC”) at the junction of Leighton Road and Caroline Hill Road, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong, which was the largest CVC within a private property portfolio. The CVC was built in record time, just 18 days, as part of a collaborative effort to hasten Hong Kong’s recovery.
Also, the Group partnered with an eye caring company and a biotech company to donate 20,000 Rapid Antigen Test (“RAT”) kits to the Fu Hong Society and 80,000 RAT kits with other anti-epidemic supplies and daily necessities such as masks, hand sanitiser, canned food to around 4,000 low-income families in Tsuen Wan, Sham Shui Po and Yau Tsim Mong districts.
Moreover, the Group donated HK$500,000 to Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui Welfare Council to alleviate their substantial expenses of employing temporary care workers, paying special allowances, and purchasing anti-epidemic supplies and disinfection.
RAT Kits have been donated to benefit residential care homes, daycare centres and underprivileged families.
Strengthening the Immunity Barrier against COVID-19
In support of the HKSAR Government vaccination exercise to build an immunity barrier for Hong Kong, the Group organised the “Chinachem Group City-Wide Lucky Draw” with over HK$20 million worth of prizes, including a staycation and shopping vouchers.
The Group supported Hong Kong Community Anti-Coronavirus Link and Tsuen Wan District Office to provide the venue at the Nina Hotel Tsuen Wan West for the Tsuen Wan Vaccination Day.
Supporting Communities through Our Hospitality Arms
The spread of COVID-19 has caused widespread fear and gloom. As part of our commitment to serving and contributing to the Hong Kong community to combat COVID-19, Nina Hotel Island South was one of the Designated Hotels to offer quarantine stay. Several media recommended Nina Hotel Island South as one of the “Best quarantine hotels in Hong Kong”. Tower 1 of Nina Hotel Tsuen Wan West was also operated as a quarantine hotel in December 2021. The Group also backed the HKSAR Government’s Community Isolation Facility Hotel Scheme in early 2022, offering Nina Hotel Causeway Bay and Nina Hotel Kowloon East as isolation facilities for those who tested positive for COVID-19 but showed no or moderate symptoms.
The event, known as “The Wave”, was self-organised by more than 170 quarantined hotel guests in Nina Hotel Island South to show mutual support to nearby residents and show appreciation to our hotel’s colleagues by decorating the hotel’s windows with positive and uplifting messages written on colourful post-it notes.
Colleagues of Nina Hotel Island South waved back to the guests with cheerful smiles. We know how difficult it is to be quarantined. The Group sponsored snacks and drinks for virtual Happy Hours to inject a little cheer into the monotony of isolation.
