When we heard the news here in Mon Space, we panicked for a while and immediately started calling our friends and families. Learning that it was a devastating incident, we decided to get some help over.

After the first explosion went off on the 12th, 8 more happened over the course of the next few days. I’ve been to Tianjin – just like many other cities in China, Tianjin is a densely populated area. Thousands of people who were living, working or touring the area may have been affected by the blast.

Following the news, Mon Space Group contacted a number of agencies and business partners in China to see how we can help. We pledged to offer our support, including the provision of basic living necessities, donations & moral support. A few of us actually flew there the next day just to give care to those in need.

We then published our pledge not only to our friends & families, but also to our business partners, customers & corporate clients to help us gather more support for the incident.

One of the people who responded was Jackie Chan – a down to earth, caring and extremely nice person that I’ve had the honour of knowing. Together with Mon Space’s team, we gathered the donations and flew to Tianjin to deliver those RMB1 million (1 million Chinese Yuan) worth of donations in person to The Jackie Chan Charitable Foundation.

Technology today has evolved so much to make our society a safer place. Despite that, accidents often happen, and our efforts to improve everyone’s safety should be more than just talk. Every step involved in the process of industrial manufacturing, such as storage of flammables, chemicals, safety features of buildings and machineries, crisis management and so forth needs to be constantly improved and supervised. Not only are the staff subjected to serious danger if we omit safety precautions, we also risk the wellbeing of entire communities.

Take this incident for instance. The cause of the explosions was not immediately known at first, but an investigation later concluded that an overheated container of dry nitrocellulose was the cause of the initial explosion. Perhaps the tragedy could have been avoided if there were better enforcement of safety measures. Tianjin will be a constant reminder for all of us, including Mon Space Group, to be vigilant in safeguarding our staff and community.

The world mourns for the casualties of this explosion, and support those who survived and are in need, including their families, friends and relatives.

With Love,
Dato’ Sri Jessy Lai & All of us from Mon Space Group[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]天津爆炸案夺命  Mon Space集团捐百万助死者家属走出伤痛

2015年8月12日,天津货柜码头,深夜。

万籁俱寂的夜晚,家家户户沉醉于甜美得梦乡中,殊不知,死神的气息已经步步逼近。平地一声巨响,将所有人都惊醒了,人们纷纷打开窗户,窗外的世界一片光亮,仿佛天亮了。

但这并不是总带朝气与希望的清晨,而是夺人性命意外爆炸,瞬间,天津附近的小区夷为满目疮痍的空城。

爆炸的那一刻,天摇地动,仿佛世界末日一样,隔日,天津爆炸的消息轰动了全世界,电视不断转播死伤者家属悲痛欲绝的画面、不断播报只有增却没减的死伤人数……得知这个新闻后,我十分震惊,心里非常难受,我在想,能够为这些心碎的人们做些什么呢?

这些死、伤患者,或许是家里的唯一支柱、或许是家中唯一的孩子,而世界上还有什么事会比生离死别更叫人难受呢?

唯有实际的帮助,才能为这些失去挚爱家人的带来点滴的安慰。

于是,Mon Space集团决定捐献帮助这些在天津爆炸中失去家人的家属们,我们将一百万人民捐赠予国际知名巨星成龙(Jacky Chan)的成龙基金会,诚意邀请成龙代表集团,将捐款交给在爆炸案中失去亲人的家属们,并将集团诚挚的安慰传达给每一位家属,让他们知道,他们并不孤单。同时,也希望这些捐款对家属日后的生活有所帮助。

希望死者家属能早日走出伤痛,勇敢的迎向每一个明天。

天佑天津。[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
