888casino is donating $50,000 to International Medical Corps UK to help its Further and Faster Fund, which enables it to get to disasters and deliver medical and healthcare immediately, rather than having to raise funds first.
The donation was raised by 888casino’s customers during its 2015 Christmas appeal, and will also be used to enable International Medical Corps staff to remain in communities for the long term to train local people, and build robust 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.”
888casino has helped to support the charity’s work since 2013, with donations previously aiding its work with those affected by Typhoon Haiyan, and the Ebola crisis in West Africa.
