BGaming and World Boxing Council launch joint initiative to support Ukraine
BGaming and WBC partner with Klitschko Foundation to provide financial support to the people in Ukraine in their current fight for independence and freedom.
This 100.000$ is the first donation and expect more to come to the charitable organization which focuses on humanitarian activities helping to overcome the war crisis in the country, especially the needs of children. BGaming along with WBC shares democratic values and stands in solidarity with Ukraine in its struggle for freedom against the Russian invaders.
“All of us are devastated and deeply disappointed by the war that has shaken such a beautiful country as Ukraine. Of course, we cannot stand detached from this horrible situation. Along with our partner World Boxing Council, we decided to make our contribution and send the revenue coming from our projects to Ukraine. We believe that joint efforts will help thousands of people!” commented Ivan Montik, Founder of BGaming.
“We stand for Peace. We pray for Peace”, adds Mauricio Sulaiman, president of WBC. “We love without borders or political affiliation. We are families and friends, united by the principles of our sport and our belief in the goodness of humanity. May God and the goodness of people lead us to a peaceful solution.”
BGaming and WBC strive to help the citizens of Ukraine and invite its partners and sports amateurs all over the world to join the initiative and make a contribution!
The WBC has always had a special connection with the people in Ukraine. In 2018, the boxing world came together in Kyiv for the 56th Annual WBC Convention hosted by the mayor, former World Heavyweight Champion Vitali Klitschko. The Future Kyiv/Klitschko Foundation, run by Vitali and his brother Wladimir, has been supporting children in Ukraine for almost 20 years. For more information, please follow the link.
“I am very thankful to President Sulaiman, my WBC family, and to our friends of BGaming”, says Wladimir Klitschko. “We have received tremendous support from all over the world and it is great to see that the boxing world hasn’t forgotten us or given up on us. We have seen attacks on schools, orphanages, children’s hospitals. Please be assured that we will use the donations wisely to help the children who are suffering most from this terrible war unleashed by Russia. Children are our future. We are fighting for their future and we will never give up this fight.”
BGaming has been involved in charitable work since 2021 providing support to various sports initiatives and environmental projects. Since February 2022, the studio has suspended marketing activities including participation in ICE London to focus on providing aid to Ukraine.
