In light of the coronavirus outbreak currently plaguing Wuhan, renowned developer and publisher of mobile games, Lords Mobile developer IGG, has set up a donation fund to help combat its further spread. The company has stated its plans to make full use of its internationally established teams to help medical professionals working in the Hubei province capital – with the first batch of supplies already on the way.
IGG laid out its relief strategy after liaising with Wuhan’s official health departments and local hospitals operating at ground-level, recognising the severity of the issue which in turn led the publisher to set up a $500,000 donation fund to provide support. Tapping into its global resources IGG also swiftly sent out requests to coordinate the procurement of medical supplies, which at the time of writing numbers in the 400,000s.
Most of these supplies consist of such important medical provisions as N95 masks, surgical gloves and other useful materials. All of which are currently on their way to the front line in Wuhan and will be received by medical institutions and staff located both there and to other relevant territories throughout China. A second batch is expected to be sent out very soon.
With there still no word of a cure to the coronavirus, professionals all over the world remain committed to keeping the death toll as low as possible while lending support where needed. IGG will continue to be one of these, lending support and assistance to local medical institutions in China until this epidemic starts to decline.
Best known for the massively successful mobile title Lords Mobile, IGG (I Got Games) is a Singapore based publisher that has partnered with several charitable organisations in the past years being committed to support worthy causes around the world.
