Wargaming has raised over $1 million to purchase ambulances for Ukraine.
Wargaming, the developer and publisher of online games, has announced that it has successfully completed the WargamingUnited charity event, which was supported by players around the world in two weeks. Six of the company’s games – World of Tanks, World of Tanks Blitz, World of Tanks Modern Armor, World of Warships, World of Warships: Legends and World of Warplanes – featured special Ukrainian themed sets with appearance elements created by artists from Wargaming’s Kyiv studio.
It became known that players from 115 countries joined this charity event and purchased more than 90 thousand sets. As a result of the campaign, Wargaming transferred 100% of each set sold – more than $1072940 through the UNITED24 platform to purchase ambulances of type C. All in order to save lives more effectively.
Let me remind you that C-type ambulances are specialized resuscitation vehicles equipped with defibrillators, cardiac monitors, oxygen cylinders and artificial lung ventilation devices.
“Wargaming is very grateful to the players and greatly appreciates their contribution and support,” the company said.
Wargaming has been operating since 1998 and is now one of the leaders in the gaming industry with 16 offices around the world, with flagship products including free-to-play hits World of Tanks, World of Warships and World of Tanks Blitz, which have Ukrainian localization.
