Community has never been more important than now. Malta's iGaming industry is inclusive and diverse, and becomes even more so as we grow and recruit more people to our dynamic industry.
Living and working in Malta is something we all cherish. That is why we invest a significant amount of time and money into supporting communities and charities across the country. This ranges from colleagues participating in beach clean-ups and fundraising for orphanages to supporting Pride Malta.
The iGaming industry has come together to support our community during this period. Together with GamingMalta, 22 companies have been taking part in an industry fundraiser in support of Foodbank Lifeline Foundation and Richmond Foundation – Malta. Our objective is to support the Maltese and Gozitan residents who have been most affected by the lockdown and isolation measures.
Our target was €10,000. We raised €14,535.
We have also come together to purchase high-quality KN-95 medical face masks providing an additional protection for those at risk and to be used by front-line healthcare workers protecting lives during the coronavirus pandemic.
Enrico Bradamante, iGEN chairman, said: “In view that the COVID-19 virus has caused a global shortage of these much-needed masks, as part of our Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives, we are delighted to offer our contribution to immediately secure 12,500 fully certified KN-95 medical face masks to assist the excellent front-line healthcare workers in Malta save lives.
“The iGaming industry is the second-largest sector in Malta, and we feel an important sense of responsibility in this time of need for the country. As an industry trade association, we stand close with the Maltese public to harness the power and the generosity of the iGaming industry to support the needs of the country – in what we call our home – during these difficult times”.
