888 Online Casino Pledges Donation To Medical Charity

$50,000 for International Medical Corps UK

888casino has pledged a Christmas donation of $50,000 to the charity International Medical Corps UK, which provides health services in areas of the world affected by conflict, natural disaster or disease.
The online casino operator has helped to support the charity's work since 2013 and is a founding member of the Frontline Network.
IMCUK has recently supported refugees created by the war in Syria, treated Ebola sufferers in West Africa and supported those affected by typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.
This donation will support the charity's 'Further and Faster Fund' enabling International Medical Corps to deploy immediately to crisis situations, rather than having to raise money first.
"Speed saves lives in an emergency and the initial hours are critical for those affected," a charity spokesperson said this week. "The fund will also enable International Medical Corps staff to stay and remain in communities for the long term to train local people, and build robust health care systems which are better able to cope in the future."
Sivan Finn, global marketing director from 888casino said:
"Our hope is that the money helps International Media Corps to relieve the suffering of those affected by war and natural disasters, through the provision of essential health services."
Kerry-Jane Kingsmill, director of resource development and communications at International Medical Corps UK, said that natural disasters such as droughts and floods affect nearly 250 million people worldwide each year, and there are more people displaced by conflict around the world than ever before.
