Online casino games supplier Pragmatic Play has donated € 21,000 to a project supported by The Metropolis Philanthropic Foundation, a non-government organization (NGO) based in Romania.

Founded in 2007, the Foundation focuses on protecting children who have been separated from their parents, and help them integrate into society. In the last few years, the foundation’s efforts have been focused on helping public hospitals renovate sections dedicated to children.

Pragmatic Play’s donation will be used for the rehabilitation of the seventh floor of the Clinical Institute Fundeni, dedicated to the children’s oncology section.

“As we move into 2021 and facing the global pandemic context, CSR  is definitely vital for the wellbeing of our society. We, Pragmatic Play, felt that it was imperative to join the project at Fundeni Hospital initiated by Metropolis Foundation in order to drive change and have minimal lasting influence from this perspective,” Ramona Predie, Pragmatic Play’s head of HR, said.

“By way of our donation, the hospital will meet some of the critical needs they face. Pragmatic Play remains firmly committed to support these institutions that provide an indispensable service to the surrounding communities. If we join forces, we can deliver incredible and significant, long-term achievements towards our fight to help the medical system.

“We are striving to ensure basic health needs of the local Romanian community and we are grateful that we can be part of this amazing change,” she added.

Pragmatic Play CEO Julian Jarvis also commented, saying:

“Supporting great causes is something we believe we can do more with, and we’re very fortunate to be in a position to support those that aim to make a real difference to our wider society.

The Metropolis Philanthropic Foundation makes a huge difference for our children in need and we’re happy to assist with our donation,”
