UEFA will mark a decade of helping Afghan landmine victims on Wednesday, when Real Madrid CF defender Sergio Ramos presents a cheque for €100,000 to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).
“I would like to pay tribute to the ICRC, who have been working relentlessly to help landmine victims, many of whom are children. Their programme in Afghanistan, which has been in place for several years, shows that football can offer real hope in challenging times,” said UEFA President Aleksander Čeferin.
“I am glad that UEFA can help this cause, and that the sport we love can have a positive impact on the rehabilitation process of so many people in this troubled region,” he added.
