28th May 2019 – Digital asset exchange, OKEx, has announced support for the Association for Abandoned Animals (AAA), a non-governmental organisation that provides cares and shelter to abandoned pets in Malta.
After setting up a new OKEx office in the country with the help of Moira Delia, a Maltese television presenter, actress, and also a well-known animal welfare activist, OKEx’s management and Malta team decided to team up with her to step in and sponsor AAA. This involves a considerable amount of funds to convert premises into a shelter that follows international best practices and guidelines set by the Malta Animal Welfare Act.
The new AAA building and dog sanctuary were inaugurated on 12th May by Joseph Muscat, Prime Minister of Malta.
“As a pioneer in the blockchain and digital asset industry , we always feel obliged to make changes to not only new technology, but also our lives. We have a great passion for animals and we believe they are a vital part of society that human beings rely heavily on, mentally and physically,” says Andy Cheung, Head of Operations of OKEx.
“We will continue to look into different areas and charitable causes where we can give a helping hand.”
