Throughout 2021 Pragmatic Play used its resources to prompt change in local communities in Malta, Gibraltar and Romania.
Pragmatic Play donated to a variety of charities including Zibel which is a Maltese NGO that organises waste removal from the sea floor, Cancer Relief in Gibraltar, Foodbank Lifeline Foundation in Malta, and a Homeless Animal Shelter in Bucharest.
Pragmatic Play’s notable highlights from 2021 include:
- A donation on International Women’s Day with a €5,000 contribution to the Women for Women Foundation back in March.
- Followed by a €21,000 donation to Metropolis Philanthropic Foundation in May which went towards renovating a children’s oncology ward in Romania which has been helping less fortunate children since 2007.
- There was also an £11,000 donation to Calpe House in Gibraltar which went towards providing accommodation and support to Gibraltarian patients and escorts who are sent to London for medical treatment by the Gibraltar Health Authority.
- A €28,000 donation to Maltese Cancer charity Puttinu Cares, with the money going towards renovating apartments in the UK where families can stay while they receive medical care that they are unable to receive in Malta.
- In October 2021, Pragmatic Play donated €20,000 to the Blondie Association. The donation covered the cost of a flight to Palermo for Damian, a baby boy that required a liver transplant. His mother donated part of her liver to give Damian a fighting chance for a better life.
- Pragmatic Play donated €14,700 to the Homeless Animal Shelter which nurses abandoned pets back to health, as well as €6,000 to three different NGOs for animals in June.
The variety and size of the donations that Pragmatic Play made throughout 2021 is testament to the importance it places on its role as a responsible corporate citizen, and one that understands that a sustainable business is first part of a sustainable society. As staunch believers in the equality of opportunity for all members of society, Pragmatic Play’s charitable commitments throughout the year offered a helping hand to those who are less fortunate and unable to access resources.
