Capacity of Temporary Shelter Service Increased to 402 Beds

The “Vui Ieng Service Centre” of the Macao Caritas, located at Rua Leste da Ilha Verde, n.º 34, Edifício do Bairro da Ilha Verde, E1, provides temporary shelter service with up to 332 beds. There had been enough beds for the past few days until the night of October 5, when the occupancy rate increased significantly. With the coordination of the Education and Youth Development Bureau, the Social Welfare Bureau (IAS) negotiated with the Ilha Verde Secondary School of the Macao Chamber of Commerce to have the school auditorium as a temporary shelter to meet increasing needs. With the kind assistance from the school, the capacity of the temporary shelter service has been greatly enhanced to 402 beds. Those in need can register at “Vui Ieng Service Centre” of the Macao Caritas, where staff will make temporary accommodation arrangements.In the meantime, the IAS has been identifying other suitable venues, considering that the school auditorium is a borrowed venue. Some facilities that have completed basic renovation but are not yet in service will be put to use as temporary shelter to better cope with the pandemic.
