888casino is donating $50,000 to International Medical Corps UK to help its Further and Faster Fund, enabling it to get to disasters to supply medical and healthcare immediately, rather than having to raise funds first.
The donation was raised by 888casino’s customers as part of its 2015 Christmas appeal. The money will also be used to ensure International Medical Corps staff can remain in communities for longer periods to train local people and build their own health care systems.
Kerry-Jane Kingsmill, director of resource development and communications at International Medical Corps UK, said:
“This Christmas Appeal’s support means that 888casino’s customers are enabling International Medical Corps to deploy immediately. Speed saves lives in an emergency – the initial hours are critical for those affected. International Medical Corps will be able to deploy right away, and stay, making the lasting difference.”
