Wargaming Helps Children in War-Torn Areas

Wargaming Helps Children in War-Torn Areas

Wargaming, along with three other gaming studios, is supporting children affected by conflict by raising the total amount of €144,000 for the non-governmental organization “War Child”, through the “Real War is not a game campaign”.

War Child is a non-governmental organisation founded in the UK in 1993 which provides assistance to children in areas experiencing conflict and the aftermath of war.

Wargaming.net’s contribution included the sale of especially designed packs with peace emblems in the EU PC version of World of Tanks as well as creating a 'For the Children' bundle for the console version of World of Tanks across Xbox 360, Xbox One & PlayStation.

Wayne Emanuel, Gaming Development Manager War Child said; "At War Child we're really overwhelmed by the generosity of the studios that took part. We'd also like to thank all the players who downloaded content or showed their support. War Child relies on support of partners like those who took part in this effort to be able to provide our crucial work. We are already excited about next year’s event where we hope we can build on this year's fantastic efforts and raise even more!"

War Child aims to build on this peaceful movement so it becomes an annual event where more and more gaming studios and players around the world raise of awareness and money to aid in its mission striving for a world with no child's life torn apart by war.

Richard Cutland, Head of Military Relations, Wargaming.net said; "As a retired soldier I have witnessed first-hand the remarkable and invaluable work that War Child does in areas affected by conflict. I am extremely proud of both Wargaming and our fabulous community for supporting this incredible and invaluable charity."
