Staircase Machines Out-of-Order

Caritas' staircase machines were all flooded during the typhoon Hato period. Although we immediately tried to repair them but many still could not be recovered for use.
 
At the worst time, we only had one staircase machine available for use, but our clients who needed the lifting service, especially the dialysis patients, could not wait, so our service also carried on.
 
A client was carried by our colleagues back to his home on 10th floor. Our colleagues went up the floors step by step, without any complaint. I really appreciate my colleagues' persistence and sense of responsibility.
 
Caritas has now ordered a few new staircase machines - one of them will arrive tomorrow and the remaining three are expected to be ready for use in January of next year. Some institutions have already informed that they would sponsor the purchases, and I would like to thank them for their great support.
 
Taking this chance, I would like to call for more people/institutions' support.  There are more than four thousand old buildings without lifts in Macau, so staircase machines are greatly in need. Thanks in advance!
