Pragmatic Play has joined other industry brands in recognising International Women’s Day (IWD), donating €10,000 ($10,898) to Survivors of Abuse with Resilience (SOAR).
Today marks this year’s IWD, a day when various organisations come together to celebrate women’s achievements and highlight the struggle for equality.
With this in mind, Pragmatic has made a contribution to Malta-based SOAR. The service, led by survivors of abuse, supports victims of violence as they attempt to rebuild their lives.
Pragmatic’s donation will go towards helping SOAR provide one-on-one sessions as well as support groups, workshops, social clubs, advocacy and outreach, among a host of other services.
“Pragmatic Play understands our cause and how invaluable volunteers do their utmost to support women in distress kindly and holistically,” said SOAR’s Chief Exec Nora Macelli.
She added: “This €10,000 donation will allow us to continue our hard work of providing those in need with the support and services they deserve as we look to assist those in strife.”
This comes after the company made a €28,000 donation to Puttinu Cares on Christmas Eve, which helped fund the refurbishment of eight apartments used to house cancer patients during therapy.
Commenting on its contribution to SOAR, Julian Jarvis, Pragmatic Play CEO, said: “International Women’s Day is a key date as we celebrate the women in both our personal and professional lives and look to assist those in need through both financial contributions and physical help.
“SOAR provides essential aid for women, and we are fierce advocates of the vital work they do, so we are immensely proud with our collaboration efforts and donation.”
