Playtech Donates $25,000 to Project Home in Barbuda

Casino game developer Playtech has announced that they've donated $25,000 to Barbuda's Halo Foundation to fund "Project Home", which will help supply furniture and equipment to residents that had their home destroyed by Hurricane Irma.

The company sent their General Manager to Antigua and Barbuda to the island nation to present the check at the Government House to Lady Sandra Williams, who heads up the initiative. Project Home will provide residents of the island access to new furniture, as it was ravaged last year by Hurricane Irma, which went on to destroy many homes throughout the Caribbean. It's estimated that 1,800 residents of Barbuda were made homeless after the Category 5 storm last year, as 95% of structures were destroyed.

Commenting on the donation Playtech's Nigel Pigott said, "It is our civic and moral duty to help each other as much as we reasonably can, especially when it comes to losses that affect so many aspects of livelihood."

Admirable act from Playtech I think, the could of probably donate even more than those 25 000$ but at guess that's even quite generous compared to some of the other gambling giants which are not interested in that kind of activity at all.

Hurricane Irma was a terrible disaster. The amount is not big, but the company should be praised anyway.
I hope that their will be enough donations to rehabilitate the affected areas.
