B2Gold donates $C1 million to BC charities

B2Gold (TSX: BTO) (NYSE AMERICAN: BTG) announced earlier this week it is donating C$1 million to charities in Metro Vancouver and other areas of British Columbia in order to help the region’s most vulnerable and at-risk local communities, including CDN$100,000 to the Canadian Red Cross to support the ongoing relief efforts, long-term recovery, resiliency and risk reduction activities in response to the heavy rains, flooding and mudslides across British Columbia last month.

“Once again, as a Canadian company based in Vancouver, we are pleased to be working with valuable local community organizations that provide the much-needed social programs for food security, mental health services, shelter and housing to Metro Vancouver’s most vulnerable,” said Liane Kelly, a company director and advisor for B2Gold’s More than Mining Fund. “Since the beginning of last year, COVID-19 has presented many local businesses, families and individuals in our communities with many unexpected challenges. In addition to grappling with the continued impact of the pandemic, the effects of this year’s extreme weather have led to unprecedented natural disasters – from a historic deadly heatwave to catastrophic heavy rains. These have ravaged the province and impacted the lives of so many, which has been incredibly devastating and heartbreaking. We are relieved to know that our CDN$1,000,000 contribution will again help make a difference again for these crucial local community organizations in dealing with such complex challenges.”
