Global Game Jam and Women in Games have organized a charity streaming event called “Playing for Türkiye and Syria”, with which they aim to gather support for the victims of the terrible earthquake that struck Turkey and Syria on February 6, 2023. Now, CD Projekt RED and GOG.com have announced that they’ll participate in the event to help raise awareness and to support the ongoing relief efforts in the region.
As mentioned above, almost a month ago several regions of Turkey and Syria were struck by a devastating earthquake that leveled multiple cities. Over 30,000 people lost their lives during the tragedy, and the millions that survived were left without a home or shelter in the middle of a harsh winter. The victims of this event now need aid due to a lack of access to food, clean water to drink, and warm clothes and shelter to survive in. This is what the event is aiming to do.
How to watch and support the “Playing for Türkiye and Syria” charity livestream

Viewers can expect live gameplay and chats with developers and streamers, giveaways, as well as other activities. Paweł Sasko, Quest Director at CD PROJEKT RED, will also make an appearance.
