Content provider to the iGaming industry, Pragmatic Play, announced Tuesday it has made a €10,000 ($10.9K) donation to Malta-based Survivors of Abuse with Resilience (SOAR), as the world observes International Women's Day on March 8.

International Women's Day is an important date in the calendar, with many entities coming together in the pursuit of equality in a social, economic and cultural sense. The annual event will see celebrations marked worldwide and Pragmatic Play's donation to SOAR is the latest contribution to an important cause in one of its hub countries.

SOAR provides one-to-one sessions for women who have been subject to abuse, as well as support groups, workshops, social clubs, advocacy, and outreach amongst a host of other essential services that the donation will help to support and grow.

Pragmatic Play's most recent CSR programme was a €28,000 donation to Puttinu Cares on Christmas Eve, which funded the refurbishment of eight apartments used to house cancer patients during therapy.

In an official press release, Julian Jarvis, CEO at Pragmatic Play, 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."    

Nora Macelli, CEO at SOAR, added: "Pragmatic Play understands our cause and how invaluable volunteers do their utmost to support women in distress kindly and holistically. By donating to such key causes it gives victims a chance to seek for new life and professional opportunities. 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."
