We have chosen to support Doctors Without Borders with a donation of 810,000 Danish Kroner to aid the need for medical care around the world.
Our CEO, Hakan Abrak, was recently asked about how this decision was made:
“As a company, we experienced great progress in 2020. Together with our talented employees, we wanted to share this success with others who have not done so well through 2020. After more than a year in which the whole world has struggled with the consequences of COVID-19, there is a great need for medical care around the world’s hotspots. That is why we have chosen to support Doctors Without Borders.”
Doctors Without Borders has been fighting to keep the COVID-19 infection levels down and treat patients. At the same time, there is still an ongoing need to vaccinate children against measles, ensure safe births for women and provide clean water across the world.
Malin Palmér, the CEO of Doctors Without Borders in Denmark (Læger uden Grænser) said:
“Other humanitarian challenges have not stopped, even though we have fought COVID-19. That is why IO Interactive’s donation is a huge help to people all over the world who need help.
We are incredibly happy and proud that IO Interactive has chosen to support us with such a generous amount. It is because of companies like IO Interactive, among others, that we can be present with emergency medical care where the need is greatest. IO Interactive’s donation will make a huge difference to some of the world’s most vulnerable people.”
Doctors Without Borders is the English translation for Médecins Sans Frontières. In Denmark, the organisation is known as Læger uden Grænser.
