Humble Heal: Covid-19 Bundle

A year after the onset of the global pandemic, some regions seem to be out of the worst, but there are countries currently going through the world's worst COVID-19 outbreaks to date. When we were approached by our friends at Humble Bundle to be a part of a new bundle from which 100% of proceeds go to charities helping in the fight against coronavirus, we didn't hesitate.

Humble selected these four charities to be part of the bundle. These charities have focused efforts in India and Brazil, and are keeping a watchful eye on neighboring countries and hot spots should COVID support be needed in other countries.

Direct Relief improves the health and lives of people affected by poverty or emergency situations by mobilizing and providing essential medical resources needed for their care. They’re currently providing local hospitals and healthcare facilities throughout India with PPE, oxygen concentrators, and other resources, and also supporting local vaccination efforts to vulnerable people in Brazil.

Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) provides medical assistance to people affected by conflict, epidemics, disasters, or exclusion from healthcare. MSF is running COVID-19 response programs in India and Brazil. In Mumbai, MSF teams are treating patients in a 2,000 bed facility set up by the Indian government, in addition to ensuring that people living with illnesses like tuberculosis continue to receive care. In Brazil, MSF is supporting fragile local health systems in Amazonas and Roraima states.

International Medical Corps provides lifesaving healthcare and supplies to children, families and communities that have lost everything due to conflict, disaster and disease. International Medical Corps is seeking funds to help work with local partners in India to provide essential supplies like oxygen concentrators, ventilators, patient beds and personal protective equipment, and to distribute COVID-19 prevention and vaccine messaging to health facilities and communities.

GiveIndia aims to channel and provide resources to verified non-governmental organizations and projects across India, supporting COVID efforts, among others. As India grapples with a severe second wave, GiveIndia is supporting those in need with medical equipment and supplies, physical infrastructure, vaccination and testing, and humanitarian aid.

For $20 or your local equivalent (or more if you feel extra generous!), you'll get not only Euro Truck Simulator 2, but also other wonderful games like:

  • Brütal Legend - You can expect Jack Black, Ozzy Osbourne, and of course metal in this hack'n'slash game.
  • SUPERHOT - The most innovative shooter we've played in years!
  • Baba is You - Game is awesome. Bundle is best. Floor is lava. COVID be gone.
  • This War of Mine - Thrilling game where you need to make many life-and-death decisions.
  • Stick Fight: The Game - Throwback to the good old times with stick fight Flash games.
  • Saints Row: The Third - Stillwater needs you and you need to go through this goofy story.
  • UNDERTALE - *Megalovania starts playing*
  • BioShock™ Remastered - Explore the beautiful underwater world of Rapture.
  • Bury Me, My Love - Very touching text messaging adventure game about a Syrian migrant trying to find her way to Europe.
  • ... and more games, books, and software.

This is the perfect moment to grab an extra key of ETS2 for your friends as we're getting to the finish line for the open beta of Convoy multiplayer for ETS2 and ATS, get some new games for yourself (tell us your favorite in comments and on our social media!), and help the world in the fight against COVID-19.

The Humble Heal: Covid-19 Bundle runs until May 19 at 18:00 UTC.
