Facing Pragmatic Play Donates €7,700 to Romania Homeless Animal ShelterPublished June 12, 2021 by Lee R
Romania is the latest jurisdiction where Pragmatic Play is making a social donation to a jurisdiction they operate in.
Leading content provider Pragmatic play has made a statement about the positive role iGaming companies can play in society with a series of social gestures.
The Latest Donation
The latest gesture for the Gibraltar-based content provider is a €7,700 contribution to Homeless Animal Hospital, an NGO committed to assisting and treating Romania's homeless animals.
About the NGO
Romania Animal Rescue coordinates the program in partnership with the 20 person team of doctors, nurses and auxiliary staff comprising World Animal Veterinary Emissaries.
Specifically supporting shelters for abandoned dogs and cats from low-income families or disadvantaged groups unable to afford veterinary treatment, the Romania Animal Rescue is just the latest social gesture for Pragmatic.
Pragmatic's Earlier Donation in Romania
Pragmatic Play made an earlier €21,000 donation to the Metropolis Philanthropic Foundation to fund redevelopment of the children’s oncology ward at Romania's Clinical Institute Fundeni, strengthening Pragmatic's ties to the Romanian community whose market Pragmatic entered in March 2020.
Donations in Other Jurisdictions
Pragmatic's NGO donation strategy has expanded across multiple jurisdictions, after earlier NGO donations in Malta (Women for Women on International Women’s Day) and Pragmatic's home jurisdiction of Malta (refurbishment of a sports pitch for Prior Park School in Gibraltar).
Pragmatic HGD Speaks
Pragmatic Play Head of Games Development Cătălin Bratosin explained social Pragmatic's goals:
“Pragmatic Play integrates kindness, respect, and compassion in all aspects of its vision and supports those who fight for a safe, healthy, cruelty-free world.”
Bratosin looked forward to seeing the Homeless Animal Hospital treating more animals than ever before through “emergency care” for “animals in need.”
Bratosin expressed personal pride overall to be a part of Pragmatic's embracing “responsibilities beyond the iGaming industry and improving the lives of others out of genuine compassion.”
Pragmatic CEO Speaks
Pragmatic Play CEO Julian Jarvis acknowledged “the importance of pets in people’s lives,” recognising them as “loved companions,” and praised the Homeless Animal Hospital for offering “support to those in need...to ensure abandoned animals can live happier and healthier lifestyles.”
Jarvis concluded that his organisation takes its commitment to society “very seriously,” demonstrating how an iGaming organization can take a leadership role in assisting society globally not just through re-investment of tax proceeds but through charitable contributions and outreach directly.
