The iGaming giant continues to demonstrate its charity
To raise awareness for Autism during World Autism Awareness Month, Pragmatic Play is donating €18,000 to two different charities Autism Voice and Autism Parents Association.
Assisting Autism Voice
World Autism Awareness Month is throughout April and Pragmatic Play funded key programmes in both building new facilities and assisting in daily activities.
Pragmatic Play has worked closely with Autism Voice in Romania and even visited the site. Autism Voice is set to open a new research centre which will cover an area of over 1,000 square meters in Bucharest.
The new centre will feature private spaces for counselling, therapy and training as well as spaces for research. Pragmatic Play plans to assist with the funding for this facility which is set to open later this year.
Funding Autism Parents Association
Pragmatic Play has also assisted the Autism Parents Association in Malta contributing to gaming consoles, board games and other interactive products aimed at helping the charity's youth project called Social Integration Programme for Teens.
The Autism Parents Association holds fortnightly sessions concentrating on behaviour, social interaction, lifestyle and other fun activities. These have been beneficial in improving mental health, interactions amongst peers, improving social skills and empowering teens who attend.
“Charities close to our hearts,” says Pragmatic Play
Julian Jarvis, CEO at Pragmatic Play, said: “Our CSR programme is extremely important to us, as we look to assist those in the communities that we’ve become part of. As April was World Autism Awareness Month, it gave us a perfect chance to work with charities close to our hearts and make a tangible difference.
He added: “It has been a great experience working with both the Autism Parents Association and Autism Voice, and we look forward to being able to support them going forward.”
