The Los Angeles-based Adelson Family Foundation presented a US$1.9 million (15.3 million patacas) ceremonial cheque yesterday to the Roman Catholic University of Saint Joseph (USJ) to assist its recovery efforts after Typhoon Hato and subsequent floods caused major damage to its new campus in August and September last year.

According to a statement by Hong Kong-listed gaming operator Sands China, executives from Las Vegas Sands and Sands China presented the cheque to USJ Rector Fr Peter Stilwell on behalf of the Adelson Family Foundation founders, Sheldon and Miriam Adelson, on the campus in Ilha Verde district.

During the visit to the campus, the executives toured the damaged areas that will be restored with the help of the donation, the statement said.
